Lorry driver shortage threatens Haribo sweets.
Haribo has said it is struggling to deliver its sweets to shops in the UK because of a shortage of lorry drivers. The brand has announced it is ‘experiencing challenges’ that are hitting supplies.
Britain’s driver shortage is becoming a crisis for the UK economy, with the LGV driver shortage approaching 100,000. This figure has almost doubled since February 2020. The haulage industry has blamed the pandemic and Brexit for thousands of unfilled HGV driver jobs and is one of several sectors having trouble finding suitable staff as the economy reopens.
