Fresh Produce exempted from Operation Stack

New measures to relieve pressure on Operation Stack announced earlier this month include plans to ‘prioritise certain goods across the Channel, including quick to market goods,’ including fresh food and some fresh produce.

A government statement said, ‘In addition quick to market products will be identified as part of the filter procedure on entry to Operation Stack. Such loads will at present be limited to fresh produce which need to be at market within a matter of hours, but will not include other products with a longer life span.’

According to the Fresh Produce Journal, ‘one fresh produce distributor in the Kent region has suffered up to 20 per cent of orders cancelled on one day, and said the issue is now a weekly occurrence.’
