"We're pleased to have sent our first shipment of onions to the UK this weekend," say Adriaan van Belzen and Laurens Mostert of Daily Onions in the Netherlands. Despite preparations, you never know beforehand how things will go. But, we passed the first test."
"We noticed early on that many of our British clients hadn't prepared much. They also don't know how and aren't willing to become importers. Daily Import will operate as a link between our clients and Daily Onions in the Netherlands. So, we hope to unburden our clients significantly. It not only makes sense cost-wise. We now control the entire process too. We can, therefore, adapt quickly if necessary."
"The coming period will prove to which extent border processes are ready. And what impact the COVID-19 tests will have. Daily Onions only trades in onions. But, if there are other market goods that Daily Import can bring to the UK, we'll certainly look into that. These are still turbulent times. But fortunately, there's more clarity now about how we can move our onions across the border," conclude the two men.
