Fast food company McDonald's has become the latest restaurant chain to be hit with supply problems as it has run out of milkshakes across all of its UK outlets.

The company is also without bottled water at around 1,250 outlets across England, Wales and Scotland.

Fast food rival KFC has also reported that supply chain issues resulted in some items being temporarily unavailable on its menu.

Last week Nando’s was forced to close over 40 restaurants across the UK as it dealt with the effect of staff shortages across the chicken supply chain in the UK.

Some Nando’s staff were relocated to work in its suppliers in an effort to get the restaurants that are affected reopened.

A spokesperson for Nando’s said:

“The UK food industry has been experiencing disruption across its supply chain in recent weeks due to staff shortages and a number of our restaurants have been impacted.

However, since Monday, a team of our brilliant Nandocas have been supporting our key suppliers onsite – working in partnership to help get things moving again, and this has already had a positive impact on affected restaurants.

“From this Saturday, as a result of the hard work behind the scenes, it is our intention that all of our restaurants will be open again, and all our customers can enjoy their favourite PERi-PERi chicken.”
