Brexit adding to ‘crippling’ UK food supply crisis, say farming chiefs

Brexit has added to the UK’s mounting food supply crisis which has seen a “crippling” shortage of some goods in the supermarket, the nation’s farming union has said.

The National Farmers Union (NFU) said current egg shortages “could just be the start” and warned that consumers could soon see a scarcity of tomatoes, cucumbers, pears and other fresh produce.

NFU president Minette Batters said Britain’s fruit and vegetable supply could soon be “in trouble”, as she urged the government to help producers under severe strain from soaring costs.

Egg shortages mentioned are not the result of brexit but a chicken cull due to bird flu. 

Including shortages like the egg problem is disingenuous and unrelated to other potential supply problems.;)

If the NFU want warnings to be taken seriously sticking to the facts would be a good start.

I read the article and it seems likely that they are also going to give vegetables away nearer Christmas. It said:

'Customers will be able to get carrots (1kg), parsnips (500g), white potatoes (2.5kg), Brussels sprouts (500g), red and white cabbages and swede for 19p each.'

I hope the growers and producers are making money and will have a good Christmas. We all deserve a fair crack at the whip. Everyone is worthy of their hire.
