Brexit Shuts Off Market for English Cheese Truckles

MATLOCK, England – An English company that has long been selling its wax-coated mini barrels of cheese directly to European consumers says it can no longer do so because of Brexit, pushing it to consider new investment in France.

“That’s completely gone. At the moment we’ve had to just switch that light out,” said Spurrell, surrounded by milking cows at the company’s creamery near Matlock, northern England.
