Key Market Trends
Brexit Pushing the Demand for Refrigerated Transportation
With the European Union being one of the major trade partners in the food and beverages sector, the United Kingdom, after the no-deal Brexit is facing extreme challenges in fulfilling the demands of the country’s population. The country, to attract other exporters, has lowered the tariffs on agricultural produce from outside of the Union.
Among the importers of the country’s meat, beef, fish and beverages, the European Union hold a major share. Creating a market outside the Union will also be a challenging task for the country.
Countries like Australia, Africa and Chile are potential trading partners for the country but are distant from the United Kingdom as compared to the EU, trading with which will require huge capacities and technologically advanced cold chain services.
Not only in the F&B sector but also the pharmaceutical industry will be facing challenges in terms of risk of drug shortages. Major drugmakers such as Bayer, Novartis, AstraZeneca and GSK have all taken contingency steps to secure their supply. Novo Nordisk and Sanofi, Europe’s largest diabetes drug companies, for instance, are stockpiling insulin in Britain, increasing the demand for advanced cold storage warehouses.
