Cheese Matters and Brexit

 

On January 1st, the U.K. is no longer a member of the EU trading block. This has important implications for how we trade together. 

The rules are changing and so must we.

Here at Cheese Matters we are preparing for a seamless transition to this new era of trading. Below we outline our simple 6-step process and how we take away the stress by offering straight forward, efficient solutions to the new rules on labelling, documentation and logistics.

For a more detailed overview of all of our post-Brexit planning and preparation, please see our

Brexit FAQ.

Dewlay

3.

The container is sealed on despatch. 

Next stop: Calais.

Cheese Matters Truck

We have a dedicated truck leaving every fortnight carrying all of our lovely cheese to our fantastic customers.

4.

By the time our truck arrives at customs, it has already been pre-cleared for a smooth passage. 

Customs

We know this because there's only ever our goods loaded onto our truck.

Once in Calais, with only one set of documents to check, we expect a stress free trip onwards to our EU warehouse.

5.

Here the truck is unloaded, then within 24 hours the goods are on their way to customers around the EU.

If you would like to collect from the warehouse instead, that is not a problem.

EU Warehouse

6.

Goods will be invoiced from our Dutch office, directly to you. 

Invoices are payable to our EU bank account.

It couldn't be easier.

Pricing will be sent to you individually, once we know if any tariffs are payable. But don't worry, you won’t be liable for separate tariffs, it will all be rolled into one price - a delivered duty paid customs entered price.
