“Inaccurate reports this weekend that frozen food could supplies could be disrupted because of a shortage of dry ice are totally untrue. A shortage of dry ice may have a minimal impact on frozen food supplies.

“However, the CO2 shortage is already effecting primary production of many ingredients used by frozen food producers and this may lead to shortages of some frozen food supplies. However, chilled foods producers are much larger consumers of CO2, which is used to extend the shelf life, so chilled food supplies are likely to be hardest hit by the shortage.

“The greater concern is that the CO2 shortage will disrupt production throughout the food supply chain at a time when we are experiencing severe labour shortages and freight problems. These have led to major supply chain issues that are set to continue for the foreseeable future.

“The government’s announcement that it has appointed Michael Gove to address these issues and “Save Christmas” only shows their lack of understanding of the food industry, as most of the planning and preparation for December has already been completed.”
