I've been told multiple times by different people from farmers to food factory owners how this is going to be a disaster, no question about that.
Absolutely right!

I worked in industrial food production for 15yrs on an 11 acre site with 835 staff. If there was bad weather in the North Sea, we had to pare down production in some areas because the ferry delays coming into Hull affected our supply of packaging materials from the Netherlands. On many occasions, we'd be stalking the car park waiting for the hackney cab to arrive from Hull laden with the flatpack boxes for our goods. The goods had a 3 day 'sell by' and 5 day 'use by' and couldn't be stockpiled without packaging, and were only ever frozen for international orders.
