EU border restrictions due to virus are disrupting food supply - food industry

BRUSSELS, March 19 (Reuters) - Restrictions imposed by several European Union countries at their borders with other members of the bloc due to the coronavirus are causing disruption for the supply of food, representatives of the industry and farmers said on Thursday.

“Delays and disruption at country borders have been observed for the delivery of certain agricultural and manufactured products, as well as packaging materials,” said a joint statement signed by trade associations representing EU farmers, food traders and the European food and drink industry.
