Posted on

Well it’s official. If you live in the U.K. and are in the mood for a McDonald’s milkshake, you are out of luck.

Milkshakes are off the menu at McDonald’s in England, Scotland and Wales due to supply chain issues.

The fast-food leader also been left without some bottled drinks across its 1,250 outlets in Great Britain this week.

McDonald’s has said that it is working hard to restore the items to the menu as soon as possible.

A company spokesman said the group is “working hard to return these items to the menu”.

“Like most retailers, we are currently experiencing some supply chain issues, impacting the availability of a small number of products,” he said.

“Bottled drinks and milkshakes are temporarily unavailable in restaurants across England, Scotland and Wales. We apologise for any inconvenience, and thank our customers for their continued patience.”

Many different industries have been battling supply chain issues including grocery stores and manufacturers.

Brexit-related staff shortages and supply chain delays due to the pandemic continue to hit companies.

Ranjit Singh Boparan, founder of 2 Sisters Food Group, said last month that his company has experienced a 15% labor shortage across its workforce of 16,000 due to a “perfect storm” of Brexit, as well as the coronavirus pandemic and government inaction in the face of a crisis.

“The operating environment has deteriorated so profoundly I can see no other outcome than major food shortages in the UK. Supply of chicken and turkey is under threat,” Boparan said in a statement.
