Industry responds to carbon dioxide shortage

There is currently a shortage of carbon dioxide in Northern Europe due to the closure of several CO2 production sites, for various reasons including maintenance and refurbishment.

Gavin Partington, Director General at British Soft Drinks Association, responded to the situation:

He said: “The shortage of CO2 across Northern Europe is impacting a wide range of businesses across the food and drink sector.

“Soft drinks producers in the UK are taking active steps to maintain their service to customers including working with their suppliers to mitigate the impact as well as looking at alternative sources.”
