The UK and the EU have finally agreed to extend the grace period on chilled meats moving from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.
The three-month extension to the grace period will mean that chilled meat products, like mince and sausages, can still be shipped from Great Britain, for sale in Northern Ireland.
The grace period was originally supposed to end on July 1 and would have led to delays or cancelled shipments of chilled meat products to retailers in Northern Ireland.
The NFRN welcomes this extension and hopes the UK and the EU are able to come to an agreement that will not be detrimental to UK retailers on either side of the Irish Sea.
The grace period will now end at the end of September 2021
