Prepping for brexit

434 replies

Numberonecook · 20/09/2018 10:42

Ive just started getting some bits together ready for brexit. As a food scientist I am very aware of how much produce comes into the country and the resources needed to get things around the country. Im also aware of the chain and how everything is ‘just in time’ And a delay in the chain could lead to serious shortages and price rises.

This really worries me as there is 5 of us to feed. So, what non food essentials do you think I should also consider? We are not prepping for huge disaster just 6 months or so. I’ve got things like toiletries, loo roll etc. Anything else?

@Onedropbeat Sainsbury's are apparently doing a cupboard special offer aisle as reported by other posters.

Morrisons have offers on tins of beans and tomatoes.

That sounds great. I was going to venture to Asda next week. Not that I need much more.

I'm hoping that one more shopping trip will do it, too.

DH told me this week not to buy anymore tinned stuff. I just told him he’d forgotten about Brexit. Our Brexit stores got us through the first lockdown. I’ve built them up again.
The press are now hinting At upcoming issues, when will they come straight out with it?

I think the fact that even the BBC are saying there could be problems is a sign that there WILL be supply issues. I don't have space for much more, so I'm just trying not to touch the freezer stuff I have, and live on fresh stuff until we can't get it.
