Arla Foods and Danone have said they are still working on resolving the disruption to the supply of the French company’s yoghurts in the UK – caused by distribution problems at the Scandianavian dairy giant’s local operations.

There have been shortages of Danone yoghurt products in some UK stores for over a week. A Tweet posted on the official Activia UK Twitter page yesterday evening read: “We are experiencing a temporary supply disruption at the moment and are making every effort to get back to normal as soon as possible.”

Arla, which acts as a distributor in the UK for Danone yoghurts including Activia and Actimel, recently moved the handling of the products to a distribution centre in Hertfordshire. It told just-food the switch was a factor in the supply problems. The dairy co-op also cited a “systems interface issue” that had an impact on orders from Danone.

A spokesperson for Arla said: “We are working very closely with Danone on solving the issue.”
