To clarify: thanks to the UK-Japan trade deal, soya sauce will be cheaper than it otherwise would be under WTO terms, on which we would be trading with Japan from 1 Jan if we had not secured the UK-Japan trade deal.
The bakers used a lot of soya sauce in the first challenge on #GBBO, so it's a good thing it will be made cheaper thanks to our trade deal with Japan πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅

To clarify, you are happy that we are keeping a deal similar to the one we had as EU members, that we had to spend an enormous amount of time and money renegotiating.

It's not a like for like deal and there are improvements on the EU deal in other areas.

But more expensive than it is now, especially as we import it mostly from the EU

Great. So I can buy a small amount of stuff for the same price I already pay, but I should be really happy because everything else will be more expensive. Give it up.

But not cheaper than had we stayed in the EU and EU soya sauce will still have a 6% tariff come 1st Jan. At last, someone with a bit of honesty takes over the Twitter account.

I had to triple check this wasn’t a parody account after this tweet and I’m still not sure

So "it will be made cheaper" than it would be if it all went tits up and the transition period ended without a deal. Also, as many other people have asked, why do you persevere with calling it "soya" sauce rather than soy sauce?
