UK faces Christmas booze shortage due to supply chain chaos, government warned
The Independent says The UK faces a Christmas booze shortage while supermarkets are being forced to “scale back” the range of other goods they stock due to major disruption to UK supply chains, industry leaders have warned.
Alcohol suppliers warned that some varieties wine and spirits may not be available unless urgent action is taken to deal with a lorry driver shortage.
The Wine and Spirits Trade Association said it had received “multiple reports” from its members that importing products is now taking up to five times longer than normal.
