Richard Whittaker are preparing for whatever Brexit brings

It’s always best to be prepared for any eventuality, especially as a supplier and processor of food goods. This is especially important when you have a large list of customers all over the UK and beyond, like we have at Richard Whittaker.

You’re sure to have heard stories about potential supply issues when Britain leaves the European Union with many factories, like ours, protecting themselves against predicted delays at ports with shipments coming in from European suppliers.

That’s why, in the lead up to Brexit, our team have been hard at work increasing our storage capabilities. It is vitally important to us and our customers old and new that we can ensure we have substantial reserves of key products. This will enable us to provide our Contract Packing service and follow through on Ingredient Supply orders with zero disruption when the time comes for Britain to go it alone, with or without a deal.

So what have we done to prepare ourselves and solve our requirement for more storage space for extra stocks prior to the deadline?

Expanding on an already sizable storage area at the Mayfield Centre, we have installed several extra bays of new racking at the warehouse entrance. The extra bays mean that we now have the capability to store an additional 200 pallets of products, ingredients and packaging.

All of this means that whatever happens with the Brexit situation, whenever the final decision is made, it will be business as usual at Richard Whittaker Ltd.
