So stupid! Rees-Mogg's Brexit Border Chaos Worse: Big Food Companies Find Solutions

In the past days Brexit border chaos is continuing to haunt the UK. As manufacturing companies and retailers go crazy about this. Our observations have found that the government is relying on the big food companies to find a digital solution to the Brexit border crisis. Ministers are said to have submitted requests for ideas for enabling a "digitized, simplified and proportionate" system that could cut red tape and delays caused by import controls. Negotiations with major suppliers and retailers, as well as industry trade bodies, began last week, after Brexit Opportunities Minister Jacob Rees-Mogg decided to delay adoption. border physical checks on imports until the end of next year. This shows that it is not easy to change the red tape caused by Brexit in a short period of time. In essence it is a quality check for countries outside the EU. Many in the industry would like to see an audit system that streamlines import controls by allowing trusted companies with approved practices to flow faster through ports like Dover. FDF head of international trade Dominic Goudie said: “It is vital that the UK government works with industry to design a new, modern and innovative border system that will benefit real benefit to consumers. “As part of this, it is important to make real changes to the way sanitary and phytosanitary certification is completed, rewarding trusted and qualified traders. high, while also making grouping much easier.” British Frozen Foods Federation chief executive Richard Harrow said: “We would like to see some sort of equivalent arrangement. “Given the complex omnichannel supply chain we have, you might think that coming up with a solution wouldn't be out of the question of human intelligence rather than having vets check health certificates manually”. However, concerns have been expressed that such a solution could harm smaller companies, even if it is agreed to by the EU. “One of our main concerns is that we don't just come up with a solution that works for the big guys, but it's also suitable for small and medium businesses,” says Harrow. “The government is calling on volunteers to help design the process. Another source said they believe ministers are pinning their hopes on the industry providing technical solutions to both the port problem and how to resolve the deadlock over incoming cargo inspection, which has seen the collapse of the Northern Irish government. “They seem to be counting on industry to create some kind of magic that will get them out of prison in the ports and in Northern Ireland as well. "It just shows how they have no rudder." Last month Rees-Mogg warned imposing checks as planned in July would be an "act of self-harm", estimating the business would cost the business an extra £1billion a year and lead to to even greater food price inflation. However, there has been growing backlash over the delay, whose handling has been described as "bad". It was a huge disappointment and discredit for the Tory administration. If nothing changes, these successive Brexit defeats will mark the downfall of the Tory party in the lower house.
