Bidfood have been working hard to support their customers and mitigate the impact
of Covid-19, which has had a devastating impact on the hospitality sector in the UK. At the same time, they are very much aware of the approaching deadline when the transition period ends on 31st December, marking the UK’s exit from the EU’s Single Market and Customs Union.
Throughout the year Bidfood have published many Brexit updates for their entire customer base to read. Many of these updates are still available to the public and can be accessed via our news posts. Alongside the updates are a number of action plans and procedures to ensure that the transition period has minimal impact.
What steps have Bidfood taken to support customers?
Bidfood do not operate a significant export business, however, their planning does need to take into account that third party transport operators who bring goods into the UK also use the same vehicles to take goods back to Europe. Therefore action has been taken on the potential for delays in supply chains.
To ensure that they are in a strong position to protect customers from any disruption that does arise through the end of the transition period, and the UK’s exit from the EU, Bidfood have taken a number of key steps to identify and mitigate any risks to product availability and any changes to tariffs.
