, ,

The Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has hired Kantar Worldpanel to study shoppers’ buying trends in the run-up to Brexit in case it needs to take action to deal with food stockpiling.


The government’s contracts finder web site said: “The agri-food chain analysis team need to be able to monitor trends in households purchasing in order to assess changes in purchasing decisions as a result of EU-Exit, including a no-deal. The analysis of this information will inform short and medium term policy development including no-deal response interventions.”
The contract started on 21st March and is due to run until 6th May.
