“We take them all”: the products that cannot be entered into the EU after Brexit.

“Since Brexit, you are not allowed to bring certain foods to Europe, like meat, vegetables, fish, these kinds of things.”

That was the response a British trucker received when he arrived in the Netherlands when border agents confiscated his ham sandwiches, following the new rules of the Brexit agreement.

The Dutch television channel TV NPO1 filmed the officers confiscating ham sandwiches and other food from drivers coming from the UK.

Officials are seen explaining regulations against the importation of certain items that have gone into effect since the UK formalized its separation from the European Union.
