LONDON (Reuters) – Leaving the European Union at the end of March without a deal would be “reckless” for Britain, the finance chief of Associated British Foods <ABF.L> said on Thursday.

“If anybody believes that you can just go ahead without some sort of an agreement here, I think that that is reckless,” finance director John Bason told Reuters.

“The UK’s food supply generally is dependent on the free flowing border,” he said.
