Apetito and Bidfood, who between them supply thousands of care providers, said they were holding extra inventory in case of supply chain problems.

Both said they were prepared but Apetito said it feared others were not.

"We are in a strong position," said Apetito UK boss Paul Freeston.

"But some firms would not be able to build up big stocks," like his firm, he said. "Or if they are doing fresh produce they would have to stop. A Hard Brexit could cause them significant economic difficulties."
