You may or may not have heard, but in England at the moment there is a tomato shortage – to the point that they are being rationed by supermarkets.
The UK Government responses:
- weather – too good
- weather – too bad
- energy costs (??)
- eat turnips instead (?????)
At the same time, this blogger has spotted a wonderful irony. 😁 DEFRA (the UK Government Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) published a video a year or so ago, as legal guidance on imports of plants and plant products.
Guess which product they chose? Yup! TO-MA-TOES!!
It has to be said that it doesn’t exactly entice would-be importers to rush their tomatoes into the UK. 😱 In a similar vein you may remember the so-called ‘simple’ guide to exporting that I published here last year.
See what you think… 😉
