Brexit: How to successfully adjust your ecommerce business

Since January 1, the UK is no longer a member of the European Union. For ecommerce businesses selling to customers worldwide and producing on-demand in several locations, it is important to be aware of how Brexit can impact your business.

We are here to help you secure a resilient supply chain through local production and successfully manage the post-Brexit landscape of cross-border trading, imports and exports.

Quality and consistency through local production

One of the best ways you can protect your business from the changing tax landscape imposed by Brexit is to take a closer look at your supply chain and how you manage imports and exports.

At Gelato, local production and our network of more than 100 local producers in 30 countries is not only the core of our business, it is the best way we can protect you against supply chain disruptions.

Almost all Gelato products are currently produced locally in the UK for distribution to your UK customer, which reduces the impact Brexit has on cross border trading. Please note that exceptions may occur and that products may sometimes be re-routed due to logistics and operational changes.

How Gelato helps you thrive post-Brexit

Cutting-edge technology, quality controls and modern equipment ensures that your brand and products look, feel and maintain the same superior quality wherever they are produced and delivered across our network. We also offer a quality and delivery guarantee to ensure that customers get the same experience whether they receive your products in Shanghai or London.
