Marmite Is British, It's Nothing To Do With Brexit, Fumes Ferrari

Marmite is a British product, made in Britain by British workers. Unilever's claim that prices must rise because of Brexit is a joke, says Nick Ferrari.

Unilever asked Tesco to increase prices by 10% due to the fall in the value of the pound.

The supermarket refused and will now not be stocking 100s of Unilever products, including Marmite, Magnum ice creams and Persil washing powder.

Speaking on his LBC show, Nick said: "While some might have exotic names, such as Hellman's and Ben and Jerry's, others are much more homegrown.

"Marmite, for instance, where you suppose that's made? Burton-upon-Trent in Staffordshire. It can have absolutely nothing to do whatsoever with the state of the pound, foreign exchange, foreign markets or anything. It's a British product, made by British workers in a British factory, sold in a British supermarket. Marmite.

"Shall we try Persil? Warrington. British product, British manufacturers, British factory, British consumers. Again, untouched by the Brexit.

"I can go on. Pot Noodle- Crumlin in South Wales. I don't need to go through the litany again. PG Tips, any guesses? Greater Manchester, absolutely right. Bovril, we go back to that factory in Burton-upon-Trent in Staffordshire.

"British products. British workers. Nothing to do with the Brexit whatsoever."
