As a responsible supplier we have reviewed our supply chain to identify those companies that could be impacted by the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union. We are working closely with each of these companies to understand what planning they are currently undertaking to ensure continuity of supply and minimise disruption.
We can confirm that most of our suppliers are working with their own supply chains to mitigate the risks associated with Brexit. Some suppliers are undertaking scenario planning for a ‘no deal’ Brexit, and others are adjusting UK held stock levels in case of delays and disruption during the initial transition period.
While the landscape around Brexit and its likely impact on trade and business remains unclear, we will continue to liaise with our supply chain and, where appropriate, make contingency plans for alternative supply arrangements.
