Sainsbury’s: Brexit could leave food rotting at border

“If you take our fresh produce supply chains, for example, we put things on a lorry in Spain and it will arrive in a distribution center somewhere in England, and it won’t have gone through any border checks,” said Sainbury’s Chief Executive Mike Coupe.

“Anything that encumbers that has two effects: it adds cost, and it also has a detrimental effect on freshness – if you’re shipping fresh produce from a long distance, even a few hours of delay can make a material impact.”
