UK produce sector promises continued supplies
Leading players in the UK’s fresh produce industry are reassuring the country’s consumers that stocks will be maintained despite lockdowns in many of the supplying countries, such as Spain and Peru. There may however be delays in road transport through Europe as drivers no longer share cabs, meaning more frequent rest periods will be required. Also, prices are set to rise as the pound falls to its lowest value against the US dollar in 35 years. This increases the cost of transporting goods from abroad.
