How will COVID-19 impact collection of grain and deliveries of inputs?

The UK-wide Cereals Liaison Group is now holding weekly meetings on COVID-19.  Currently movements of goods have not been subject to significant disruption but there are reports of severe traffic problems at internal and external EU borders which could affect movement of goods to the UK.  You should liaise with your suppliers if deliveries look as if they may be delayed and check what your contract says about deliveries, including Force Majeure.

The grain trade has said that processes at intakes are taking longer due to COVID measures.  Any concerns over collections should be taken up with buyers/merchants without delay.  Just as in normal times it is important that you should be ready when lorries arrive to collect grain.  If you are notified of delays in collection you should check your contract.

You should also observe COVID-19 precautions for deliveries and collections and ensure that facilities for hand cleansing are made available to drivers and that they are used as required.
