U.K. McDonald’s In Milkshake Drought Due to Brexit Transport Issues


Fast food giant McDonald’s has taken milkshakes off the menu in all UK restaurants.

1,250 Restaurants in England, Scotland, and Wales have been left without milkshakes and bottled drinks as it suffers from “some supply chain issues”.

But luckily McDonald’s in Ireland will not be left without as a spokesperson for the restaurant has said there are “no current issues” in their Irish restaurants.

McDonald’s is the latest to be hit by supply issues after Nando’s was forced to shut down a number of their restaurants due to a chicken shortage.

KFC also recently warned that supply chain issues meant that it was not able to stock some menu items.

It is understood that the issues are being caused by a shortage of lorry drivers following post-Brexit EU immigration rules, Covid-19 restrictions, and self-isolation rules.

A McDonald’s spokesperson said: “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.

“We apologise for any inconvenience, and thank our customers for their continued patience.”
