BREXIT – A LETTER TO OUR CLIENTS
By Blends Flavours & Colours | 24/01/2019 | Beverage Trends
Subject: Hard Brexit preparation
Due to the on-going Brexit negotiations, the fast approaching exit of the EU and the uncertainty over whether we will have a successful Brexit or a hard Brexit, Blends want to reassure our customers that we will continue to monitor trading developments closely to ensure we have none or minimal disruption in our operations.
Over the last 6-8months, we have been taking every step possible to ensure we are prepared either way for a No-deal-Brexit, a Soft-Brexit or a Hard-Brexit. These steps include:
Increased stock holding of products imported from the EU
Implementing a Freight forwarder to ensure no delays at the ports/borders
Registration of TSP, making it easier to import goods into the UK
Registration of an Economic Operator Registration & Identification number (EORI)
Working together with our EU suppliers to ensure a smooth transition period
We will communicate any and all relevant information regarding Trade Tariffs, Duty and the incoterms that Blends will adopt once a decision has been reached by our Government.
In the meantime, should you have any questions regarding your account or concerns about any call off orders you have, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your Account Manager, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
We will continue to do everything we can to ensure you are kept updated on any developments.
