Greggs stockpiling sausage roll pork in preparation for Brexit
The bakery giant has begun stockpiling pork so that in the case of a no-deal Brexit, sausage roll production can continue.
Greggs said: "we are preparing for the potential impact of the UK's departure from the European Union by building stocks of key ingredients."
Greggs has released details of its plans ahead of the UK’s departure from the EU in a trading update that also showcased a sales rise of 12.4% over the last 13 weeks.
The firm has previously worried about fresh lettuce and tomatoes and warned that it they may have to find alternatives. Greggs also cautioned that the cost of labour would increase. In a bid to be Brexit ready, they have begun stockpiling these key ingredients as well as acquiring equipment "that could be affected by disruption to the flow of goods into the UK".
