I'm English but based in Holland and use a lot of UK suppliers for business and UK bait for fishing. Recent episode of BBC R4's 'Bottom Line', 'How to set up an EU subsidiary' had the editor of The Economist on. She stated (non politically) that the UK Gov are reluctant to 'align' food standards (as they were) to ease the export hassle to Europe / NI because this would jeopardise a trade deal with the US.

On non food imports, our costs have risen about 10%. Dutch tackle shops have had no UK bait deliveries since Brexit.

Not odd at all, bob might be thinking along the right lines, just because shelves appear stocked doesn't mean there are no shortages , they may be plenty of things consumers haven't noticed

Odd how one person in the food industry says no shortages, another who's involved says there is. I use a few different supermarkets at different times of day or week and always the shelves are well stocked

Well my missus does most of the shopping so I asked her about shortages and she hadn't noticed any. We buy a wide variety of fresh fruit and veg, tinned and frozen, meat, breads, cereals and we allow ourselves some unhealthy snacks. And alcohol we buy plenty of that, she likes her prosecco and cava.
Not sure why there's a disparity, I hope it gets sorted for you soon

No. It's every week. And it's only been happening since 1st January. Honestly, I'm reporting something I'm seeing with my own eyes, but somehow I'm mistaken. Guess the food and drink industry exporting to Europe are just looking for things too?

Maybe, or maybe you are looking for things? Or they got the supply and demand calculations wrong where you are?
