Members will no doubt be aware of the serious problem the industry is facing regarding a shortage of Carbon Dioxide (CO2).

CO2, which is a by-product of fertiliser production, is used across the food supply chain, from the stunning process prior to slaughter of pigs and poultry (in the main) to gas flushing of packs for preservation.

However, a shortage has emerged after production was paused last week at two fertiliser plants in England, owned by CF Fertilisers, because of the rising price of natural gas.

As you will appreciate, this is a developing situation. We were hoping at this point to bring you further detail from one of the many Government led forums we attend. However, at the time of writing, we are still waiting for such forums to take place.

As soon as we have any further information, we will ensure we update you.

In the meantime, you may wish read the latest press release which announces that Government have secured a deal to temporarily maintain supplies of CO2 to the food sector for the next 3 weeks.
