Over one third of British food firms to pause or cut deliveries to Northern Ireland

Hauliers could be conducting fewer trips between the British mainland and Northern Ireland next year if a new survey by the Food and Drink Federation is anything to go by.

The survey was answered by fifty of the Food and Drink Federation’s members, including a number of suppliers producing household brands regularly purchased in British supermarkets.

According to the Guardian, slightly over 20% of the suppliers surveyed stated they were planning to “pause GB-NI deliveries to ensure we can be legally compliant with NI rules”. An additional 11.6% declared they intended to pause supplies “while we assess if it remains a viable market”. Finally, another 4.7% said they would reduce the volume of goods sold from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.

The results of the survey come roughly a month after supermarket chain Sainsbury’s admitted that they may reduce shipments to Northern Ireland.
