Expat shops across Europe have still not been officially informed about the Sudan 1 food crisis,The Grocer has learned.
“If my mother hadn’t called and told me to look at the BBC web site on the Sunday after the story broke, we would still be in the dark,” said Cecil Gray, who runs a food store in Frankfurt called A Taste of Britain. “We have removed the products we saw listed on the web site but it mainly only affected our Pot Noodles and crisps,” said Gray.
Paul Raymond, who manages a British food store in Spain, also found the story on the internet and hasn’t yet been informed by
suppliers or manufacturers. “When customers enquire about the gaps on my shelves I tell them of the scare and most are unaware of it,” said Raymond.
Food from Britain has advised its international network.
