Fast food chain Boojum's owner has described a scramble to get foil wrapping for the Northern Ireland firm's Mexican burritos after a Brexit supply hitch.

David Maxwell, who took the business over with brother Andrew in 2015, said bowls for serving burrito fillings had also been held up in ports.

And the Monterey Jack cheddar-style cheese for its burritos is facing paperwork as it is sent over to Great Britain for shredding before coming back. Mr Maxwell said the business had pivoted towards contactless click and collect ordering, takeaway, delivery and meal kits as a result of the pandemic. Today it launches two ready meals - a beef chilli and bean chilli - to be sold through Henderson Group convenience stores like Spar.
