Preparation for a possible outcome that Britain will leave the European Union without a trade deal.
Whilst negotiations are still on-going regarding our future relationship with the EU, it is critical that we prepare ourselves for any possible disruptions in supply and price increases especially if sterling devalues further. We have been actively looking to minimise the impact of any disruption by sourcing products where possible that are “home grown”. We have asked our suppliers where any of their ingredients are imported to be mindful and secure enough stock to continue production and supply in the event of any custom border issues. In the event of a no deal, we are confident that there will be a grace period giving us time to prepare.
DDC would like to reassure our customers that all reasonable steps have been taken in order to eliminate or minimise any possible disruption to supply. However, customers who are wishing to place any significant increases in their orders, please can you let us know your forecasts at the earliest so we can increase our additional stocks accordingly.
