Brits 'stockpiling £4bn worth of goods' ahead of Brexit

Josh Hall's picture

British consumers have already spent £4 billion stockpiling food, drinks, and medicine ahead of a potential no-deal Brexit.

This is according to research from Premium Credit, a finance company, which suggests that one in five Brits are stockpiling goods.

Amongst those, the average individual has so far spent £380. According to the survey, more than 800,000 people have already spent more than £1,000.

There is widespread concern about the impact of a no-deal Brexit on supplies of key goods to the UK.

Food, drink, and medicines are all reportedly threatened by potential supply chain disruption.

Last week we reported that Domino's, the pizza chain, has already spent £7 million stockpiling ingredients that it imports for its pizzas.
