Food production in the UK at risk, warns industry

Food manufacturing in the UK is under such strain due to staff shortages that some production may have to move out of the country, a retail group has said.

Andrew Opie from the British Retail Consortium (BRC) said shortages of HGV drivers and other supply chain staff meant that the sector was “just on the edge of coping” right now, reports BBC.

He warned the Christmas period would be “incredibly challenging” in some areas.
