Dairy firm Arla: Drivers shortage cutting milk supply

(MENAFN) Dairy firm Arla, which provides milk to all main UK supermarkets, has stated that lack of lorry drivers has caused the cutting on its deliveries.

UK managing executive Ash Amirahmadi stated that the company normally provided 2,400 stores a day, but had been seeing driver shortages since April.

He cautioned of a summer of disturbance and asked the government to act "Last Saturday, there were 600 stores that we couldn't deliver milk to".

He also added that "It's very worrying for customers when they go into shops and find that the shelves are empty".

"Our assessment is that we're in a driver shortage crisis and therefore we're asking for the industry and government to work together to recognise we're in a crisis and actually address the issue."
