Fresh food traders brace for Brexit

46792451381_499d365f6a_b.jpg?profile=RESIZE_710xBirmingham Wholesale Market is the UK's biggest mixed wholesale market where almost a hundred traders buy and sell fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and flowers from all over the world.

Some of them have been open for nearly a hundred years and they sell to customers across the Midlands and as far afield as south Wales.

Everything the market sells has a short shelf life, so there is concern among the traders about any delays at ports in the event of a no-deal Brexit, as customs checks are reintroduced on goods from the EU.
