The British Frozen Food Federation (BFFF) is calling on the UK government to raise the harvest quota for coldwater shrimp imports to prevent buyers and end consumers being hurt by damaging tariffs.

"This year's tariff quota for coldwater prawns is likely to be exhausted by the end of the summer," outgoing BFFF CEO Richard Harrow wrote in a letter to the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) Minister George Eustace.
