To at least some degree rationing in England lasted until 1954: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationing_in_the_United_Kingdom#Post-Second_World_War_1945-1954

 

And I've come across references to black market/smuggling among those on the US to England or Canada to England convoys, including of all things, birdseed for parakeets and other pet birds.
