Dutch officials seize ham sandwiches from British drivers

quote [ Officials wearing high-visibility jackets are shown explaining to startled car and lorry drivers at the Hook of Holland ferry terminal that since Brexit, “you are no longer allowed to bring certain foods to Europe, like meat, fruit, vegetables, fish, that kind of stuff.”

To a bemused driver with several sandwiches wrapped in tin foil who asked if he could maybe surrender the meat and keep just the bread, one customs officer replied: “No, everything will be confiscated. Welcome to Brexit, sir, I’m sorry.” ]

Welcome to Brexit, Sir! Bahahahahaha!!
if only we could come up with a similar way to hamper the rabid Q and Trump fanbois

To control the spread of agricultural pests and diseases, primarily. With a unified policy on the matter it wouldn't matter, but now that the UK can set their own rules for such things Europe has no guarantee that those agricultural products continue to adhere to European standards.

Actually, it seems you can bring fruit and veg, generally. I presume because it had been made into a sandwich with the meat that the officer insisted on the whole thing being confiscated.

If you travel to the EU from a non-EU country, you are not allowed to bring any meat or dairy products with you. You can however bring a limited quantity of fruit and vegetables as well as eggs, egg products and honey. Restricted quantities of fish or fish products are also allowed.
