Listen Now: Brexit Boxes: Everything You Need to Survive The EU Exit
People in Britain are preparing to leave the European Union and one company is hoping to ease their fears.
In about nine weeks Britain is set to leave the European Union. But there is currently no deal on how the country will trade with the EU once it leaves.
This has left retailers and manufacturers concerned about food and medicine shortages and chaos at the ports. Enter the Brexit Box, a three hundred and eighty dollar solution of food rations.
The box, produced by businessman James Blake is full of things such as chicken tikka, chilli con carne, macaroni and cheese and dried meat. There are also emergency supplies such as fire lighter liquid and a water filter.
Blake says the Brexit process is something no one can control, including the government, so people need to take control themselves. In the case this potential chaos lasts awhile your Brexit box will as well.
Blake says each kit has a long shelf life with the canned food able to last up to twenty-five years. So even if Brexit is a total bust, customers will survive.
