Food and drink

Ladies and Gentlemen, There are a number of posts which talk about the benefits of cross boarder shopping but I have a question with a slight twist.

Am i subjected to the same limit rules i.e. CH300 with regards to food and drink if they are included in my personal effects during my relocation. The reason I ask is that I am hoping to stop off at (COSTCO) a cash and carry in the UK and stock up on food, drink and general household items but am not sure whether they will be taxed at the boarder or not....I'll await your always helpful comments Thanks ;

Re: Food and drink

Interesting question- when we moved all boxes had to be labelled with the content and listed on a special form. Contents of our kitchen cupboards where obviously just odd items - but if you have full boxes of baked beans, cleaning products, booze and fags - I think it will be pretty obvious. Your average customs officer will soon pick up 'normal personal items' and ... well, more.
