Italian deli prepares UK shoppers for Brexit shortages with non-perishable hamper
Online Italian delicatessen Diforti has put together a ‘Brexit Box’ hamper full of non-perishable items for UK shoppers.
The box contains nine items that Italian delicatessens in the UK may have trouble stocking come March 29. This includes Carnaroli rice, Nduja spread, truffle oil and Sicilian pesto.
“The looming prospect of Brexit may have already hit the pound, but it could be about to hit the people of the UK where it really hurts – their kitchen cupboards. The price of olives has hit a seven-year high, and there are warnings of an impending cheese shortage.,” said Diforti director Carlo Diforti.
“We don’t want any of our customers missing out on the very best Italian ingredients, no matter what we wake up to on March 29th. That’s why we’ve put together the Brexit Box, full of items that may be harder to come by once Brexit comes around.”
The box is available on Diforti’s online store for £44.99 (€52.55).
