A BREXIT survival kit has been launched for the British public due to worries that food imports will be limited if Britain leaves the EU without a deal. 

The ‘Brexit Box’, with a cost of £300, was created in order to ‘prepare’ Britons for the possibility of an imported food supply shortage if a no-deal scenario occurs.

More than 700 people have reportedly purchased the kit which allegedly contains enough food for one person to survive for one month. 

The package has a shelf life of 25 years and contains 60 freeze-dried meals, 48 portions of meat, a water filter and fire-starting gel.

Beef and potato stew, chicken tikka and pasta bolognese are some of the meals included in the ‘Brexit Box’; a deluxe version of the supply kit is also available for purchase, including puddings and breakfasts.

Despite claims made by the UK government spokesman reassuring Britons that there is no need to stock food supplies, the Sunday Times revealed that the government has been allegedly preparing plans for martial law, a state of emergency, curfews, and other drastic measures in the event of disorder after a no-deal scenario.

James Blake, from the Emergency Food Storage UK company which sells the ‘Brexit Box’, says that there is a strong chance Britons will need their survival kit.

According to Blake, there are rumours that there may be potential issues at UK ports that could affect product imports and if that is the case, people need to “protect themselves” and be prepared.

Despite claims made by the ‘Brexit Box’ suppliers, the UK government has stated that people don’t need to stockpile food, water filters or fire starters.

“The UK has a strong level of food security built upon a diverse range of sources including strong domestic production and imports from third countries. This will continue to be the case whether we leave the EU with or without a deal,” a government spokesperson said.

  1. People, if you’re seriously worried about Brexit, fair enough. But don’t let the first con-man sell you stuff that, come to that, won’t be what you need. Instead, look for the Facebook 48% Preppers group, where people worried about Brexit get together. Look at the files. There is a bit of everything, but if you have common sense you’ll have no trouble finding the files with useful advice.

    And to be specific:
    – Long-life foods aren’t what you should be stockpiling, because supermarkets are stockpiling that for you.
    – There is no reason to think the water supply has the slightest thing to do with the EU.
    – Same with the gas supply. It comes from Norway, which is out of the EU.

    However, there are other sensible steps you may want to consider. Not enough space here to go into detail, but you are welcome to the group.
