Domino's Pizza stockpiling ingredients ahead of no-deal Brexit
Domino's Pizza Group are spending millions on stockpiling ingredients in anticipation of a no-deal Brexit.
The company has already spent £7 million building up supplies of imported ingredients such as tomato sauce over fears that a disorderly exit from the European Union will cause supply chain disruption.
The Guardian reports that Domino's imports many of the ingredients it uses to make its products, including all of its long-life ambient items.
Commentators have long warned that a no-deal Brexit would cause significant disruption to supply chains across the board.
As well as concerns over food supplies, there have long been worries that Britons will not have ready access to vital medicines such as insulin in the event that a deal is not secured.
New prime minister Boris Johnson has said that he is committed to leaving the European Union on 31 October with or without a deal.
But it is not clear whether or not he has enough support in Parliament in order to so.
The government has an arithmetical majority of just one, and it is thought that a significant number of Conservative MPs will defy the whips if the prime minister attempts to force through no deal.
