Adequate Food and Drink?

So this week in the news you may have stumbled across the term adequate food in relation to the ongoing Brexit omnishambles. Whilst these articles and news casts refer more to fresh produce coming into the United Kingdom from the European Union it did get me thinking about what other things (mostly booze) that we as a nation import and what things we’re likely to either have to fork out extra for, or we’re soon to be running low on.

Have a look at the list from just a few of the member states and see if there’s anything on there that you might want to begin stockpiling, me personally I’m going to be stocking up on fine French Wine, sweet Italian Marsala and some tolerbale port from Portugal.
