As per reports, McDonald’s Corporation (MCD) has taken milkshakes and bottled drinks off the menu at all of its British restaurants as the burger giant is battling with the supply chain issues hitting businesses across the retail and hospitality sector.
“Like most retailers, we are currently experiencing some supply chain issues, impacting the availability of a small number of products. Bottled drinks and milkshakes are temporarily unavailable in restaurants across England, Scotland, and Wales,” stated a McDonald’s UK and Ireland spokesperson.
British retailers, cafes, and restaurants are facing problems as they cope with a shortage of drivers, in particular heavy goods vehicle (HGV) drivers, and food processing staff after the pandemic. Reportedly, the problem is not unique to Britain, countries like the United States and other European countries are also amid truck driver shortages. However, the Industry groups suggest that Brexit has made matters worse.
