Today, a Sainsbury’s spokesperson said All products for the Great British Christmas lunch are already in the country and we have plenty of these.

We hope the UK and French governments can come to a mutually agreeable solution that prioritises the immediate passage of produce and any other food at the ports.”
Chief executive of the Food and Drink Federation, Ian Wright, talked about the flight ban and supermarket shortage worries and said there is “no need”, however raised “concern” around food supplies in the longer term, particularly after Christmas.
Many officials from the government public should not panic to buy needs as a result of France’s ban on freight lorries from the UK.
