Brexit, Farming & Plastic Pallets

You'd be forgiven for thinking that we were done with Brexit, but it is still very much on the agenda. But with the Coronavirus already impacting import and export what will a no-deal mean for the future of farming?

Farming is one of the cornerstones of our rural economy, but a recent article by Countryside suggests that many of our farmers are deeply concerned about the impact of a no-deal Brexit on issues such as trade and labour.

British food and farming is worth £122 billion to the national economy and provides jobs for almost 4 million people. With a no-deal Brexit in place, there would be additional costs to trade – tariffs on UK exports to the EU.

With a decision on Brexit required by the end of the year, it's imperative that our exit from the EU is done smoothly and sensibly. Here at Goplasticpallets.com we have worked hard to ensure that our range of agricultural plastic pallets, boxes and containers are designed to provide solutions to the storage and distribution of fruit, vegetables and meat.

What's more, all of our plastic pallets, boxes and containers are ISPM15 exempt. If a no-deal goes through at the end of the year, those exporting to Europe will need to ensure that all wooden packaging used to export goods must be heat treated, stamped and certified before shipping.
