26 October 2020
The UK is set to leave the EU following the referendum in 2016. The current status is that we will be leaving the EU at the end of December 2020 with or without a deal. At present like the rest of the UK we do not know exactly terms we will be operating under and looks likes this will remain the case until the very last minute.
As the UK’s Market Leader in Veterinary wholesaling and distribution we take our role very seriously in supporting continuity of supply during any post Brexit changes and we have been monitoring the situation closely as I’m sure other companies are too. We are in regular communications with the authorities that govern our business and the supply of medicines into the UK from the EU 27 countries.
Through our widespread distribution centres across the UK and our central facility in Stoke on Trent we have taken a number of proactive actions including carrying extra stock and increasing our capacity. We continue to work with manufacturers and all our supply chain partners to mitigate risks as we identify them. A collaborative approach continues to be the most effective plan of action during this everchanging situation.
We continue to monitor the situation closely to ensure we can minimise disruption to our customers and will update you as more information comes to light.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
