The impact of Brexit – Should we start stockpiling loo roll??!!

The UK is living in a world of uncertainty at the moment, from trade deals to votes of no confidence, and the mention of potential rationing to our everyday commodities takes us back to Britain in wartime. But what does a no-deal Brexit mean for your everyday shopping list?

The UK imports everything from food, fuels, medicine and vehicles so a no-deal Brexit could mean not just potential delays at ports for these materials entering the country, but also a spike in the price of these items for the customers who need them. Pulp is a raw material required to manufacture paper, whether it’s newspapers and magazines or toilet paper and kitchen towel, and it’s also a material which is imported into the UK market.

Panic not!

Toilet paper is on everyone’s weekly shopping list whether it’s a deluxe brand or a budget variety, so it is of course going to be an item in high demand 365 days of the year, deal or no deal! Here at Nova Tissue UK, our warehouse is fully stocked ready for all Brexit eventualities. We pride ourselves in always trying to give our customers the very best offer (and paper for their pound!), so we’ve focused on buying our raw materials from UK suppliers to ensure minimal disruption for our customers.

As always, we will be providing the same level of service throughout this period of uncertainty and are confident that our Nova Tissue customers will continue to receive the very best offer.
