The Cheshire Cheese company has informed that it will no longer directly sell barrels of cheese to EU consumers. This is due to the effects Brexit has created.

The company has said that they have sold about £180,000 cheese truckles, all across Europe last year. That is no longer possible according to managing director Simon Spurrell, due to the new additional costs for shipments.

Cheese now requires health certificates, which costs £180 per consignment. Imagine paying that extra for a £25 cheese.

As such, the company has also halted plans of making a distribution centre in Macclesfield. Instead, they are now considering a hub in France, wherein they can freely ship wholesale.
