Deal or no deal, if Britons can be certain of anything after the Oct. 31 Brexit deadline, it is that they will still be able to get their Domino's pizza.
The Guardian reported on Tuesday that Domino's Pizza Group (DPZ) - Get Report has spent £7 million (US$8.5 million) stockpiling tomato sauce and other pizza-making ingredients in the event a no-deal Brexit disrupts supplies.
According to the Guardian, Domino's buys flour and cheese in the U.K. but gets the tomato sauce for its pie bases from Portugal. Other imported ingredients added to the stockpile include frozen chicken and other long-shelf-life additions and toppings like tuna and pineapple.
"A potential no-deal Brexit carries the increased risk of disruption to raw-material supplies into the U.K. and foreign-exchange volatility which could increase food costs," Domino's told the newspaper. A spokesperson for Domino's U.S. operations had no comment.
British importers of perishable food are particularly exposed to the threat of a no-deal Brexit, which most trade experts say would cause delays at the border and increase the possibility of higher prices.
Boris Johnson's government has committed to leaving the EU on Oct. 31 with or without a deal.
Shares of Domino's were up 1.4% at $243.02 in midday trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
