McDonald’s says it will stop selling milkshakes in some UK units due to supply problems

This week, fast food chain McDonald’s made a definite announcement in the UK: it had run out of resources to produce a milkshake in 1,250 units across the country.

But this news is a sign of a bigger problem: the UK supply chain crisis.

It is estimated that the transport sector alone will have to fill about 100,000 vacancies to meet the existing demand in the country.

It also warned that if the government did not do something about it, there would be a shortage in most supermarkets.
