Nova Tissue’s Managing Director comments on stockpiling of toilet roll ahead of Brexit in The Metro

During this time of what seems to be prolonged uncertainty, one question keeps being asked… Do we need to stockpile toilet paper? As a key spokesperson in the toilet paper manufacturing industry (or at the very least in our Nova Tissue factory!) our Managing Director Khurram Iqbal has been asked to comment on this very issue for the metro.co.uk, read his feature here.

‘Apocalyptic Pantry’

With preparations in place for a no-deal Brexit, consumers across the country are starting to stockpile household essentials to ensure they aren’t caught short. Whilst we don’t think that stockpiling toilet paper is entirely necessary, prolonged disruption for incoming supplies at ports will no doubt severely test suppliers and could lead to some empty shelves.

The Brexit Plan

The UK is heavily reliant upon imports of raw materials including the main ingredient needed to produce toilet tissue and kitchen roll, but as we’ve been aware of the impending changes Brexit will bring, deal or no deal, our warehouse is fully stocked for all eventualities. Along with stocking up our warehouses, we’ve concentrated on sourcing as much of our raw materials as we can from UK suppliers which will help ensure minimal disruption for our customers.

We like to keep our customers in the loop with any developments at the Nova Tissue factory so will be maintaining our levels of service during this period, but if any customers are concerned please get in touch.
