Silver Report Uncut: Major Supermarket Chains Warns Worst Food Supply Shortage Ever

Major UK supermarkets are warning that the food supply shortages are the worst they have ever seen. The food supply chain has been disrupted by a lack of lorry drivers, and by a shortage of labour in general.

Steve Murrells, chief executive of the Co-operative Group, told the Times that they had significantly reduced the range of some products. He blamed Brexit and pandemic-related fallout.

The road haulage industry says there is currently a shortfall of around 90,000 drivers.

Meanwhile, the boss of frozen food retailer Iceland, Richard Walker, told the BBC that unless the problems are resolved now, it could affect the all-important Christmas supplies.

“The driver shortage is impacting the food supply chain on a daily basis and leading to shortages on the shelves,” Walker said.

“We’ve had deliveries cancelled for the first time since the pandemic began, about 30 to 40 deliveries a day.”

British Meat Processors Association (BMPA) yesterday also said that supplies of Christmas favourites like pigs-in-blankets could be affected.

Industry groups say that training for new drivers is taking months.
