12 April 2019
The UK was set to leave the EU following the referendum in 2016, however the departure date has been delayed twice. EU leaders have agreed to delay the UK’s departure date until 31 October 2019 to avoid a no-deal Brexit. The UK can leave earlier than this new date if a deal is agreed.
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.
It remains difficult for all parties to have answers to specific questions and we will continue to work with the manufacturers and all our supply chain partners to mitigate risks as we identify them. A collaborative approach continues to be the most effective antidote to the everchanging picture.
We will 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.
