According to the remoaners we would be scratching around for floppy carrot and a crust of stale bread off the mighty table of the EUSSR.

common enough trick to say
oh those awful remoaners said Christ would come again 3 days after we left the WUSSR - and how wrong they are ! they are LIARS you know !
I hope you are right.
But probably a bit early to say either way.
Lorries are jammed in Kent and in France and not much is moving, including maybe carrots.

We will have to wait to see if any shortages or price increase materialise. Calling out Project Fear before we have actually left is a bit premature.

I believe! I believe!
Do you think veg we buy is fresh out the ground?
I'm very partial to floppy carrots and stale crusts, which is why I voted leave in the first place.
Can we have blue carrots?
you can have curved bananas now, archibaldy, after they've been banned for so many years.
Throughout my long life, I’ve never seen a banana that was not curved.
I guess you could grow a straight banana if the fruit was grown in a rigid cylinder of suitable size.
Hymie that would be difficult as bananas grow in hands, not singly as cucumbers do....also it was fake news!
The alleged ban on curved bananas is a long-standing, famous, and stereotypical claim[17][18][19][20] that is used in headlines to typify the Euromyth.[21][22] Amongst other issues of acceptable quality and standards, the regulation does actually specify minimum dimensions. It also states that bananas shall be free from deformation or abnormal curvature.[23] However, the provisions relating to shape apply fully only to bananas sold as Extra class; slight defects of shape (but not size) are permitted in Class I and Class II bananas. However, a proposal banning straight bananas and other misshapen fruits was brought before the European Parliament in 2008 and defeated.[24]

On 29 July 2008, the European Commission held a preliminary vote towards repealing certain regulations relating to other fruit and vegetables (but not bananas). According to the commission's press release, "In this era of high prices and growing demand, it makes no sense to throw these products away or destroy them [...] It shouldn't be the EU's job to regulate these things. It is far better to leave it to market operators."[25] Some Eurosceptic sources have claimed this to be an admission that the original regulations did indeed ban undersized or misshapen fruit and vegetables.[26][27]

On 25 March 2010, a BBC article stated that there were EU shape standardisation regulations in force on "apples, citrus fruit, kiwi fruit, lettuces, peaches and nectarines, pears, strawberries, sweet peppers, table grapes and tomatoes", and "Marketing standards for 26 types of produce had been scrapped in November 2008, following information that a fifth of produce had been rejected by shops across the EU for failing to meet the requirements."[24]
The so-called fear (ridiculously exaggerated by the OP) was largely based on no deal .
But there has been a deal, so as in fact predicted the impact on food prices should indeed be less severe.
This is great news jno, I’m looking forward to classifying the fruit using our own UK sovereign banana curvature standards and not those of the barmy EU.
Yeah, because of the trade deal. If it had gone to a no deal instead, which some (mystifyingly) would still prefer, we'd have been screwed by price increases.
the official standards are displayed on a plaque which will shortly be placed by the front door of the newly revived Ministry of Bananas
