Changing Menu’s in the Event of Brexit?

September 21, 2019

Cavendish Venues has tasked one of their most senior managers to urgently update their contingency planning in the event of no deal Brexit. This comes on the back of a floury / slurry of recent news about possible shortages. The caterer reported back in August that if border checks took just 6 seconds then food shortages could last for 6 months. They went on to quote several supermarket executives who said that in this scenario they would or may limit the supply:

“We wouldn’t use the word rationing but that is effectively what it is. Limiting the volumes small businesses can purchase so that our retail customers get a chance to get what they need.”

Further evidence of this sort of thinking came today. The City AM newspaper reported today that Greencore who produce 3 out of 5 sandwiches in the UK have significantly increased their stockpiling of raw ingredients!

The message is clear if the are any delays even a 6 second delay then it will impact the hospitality industry i.e. The UK imports 60% of its pork, 82% of its cheddar cheese etc. etc.

At Cavendish Venues we are and will as prepared as we can be. If you are looking conference venues in London, and in sustainable conference venues and or auditorium (s) for hire in London look no further.
