Supplies of one of Britain’s favorite sauces have dried up throughout the lockdown as a result of of a bottling crisis.
Supermarkets say they’ve struggled to restock their cabinets with Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce — a staple for cheese on toast and barbecues as effectively as a key ingredient in Bloody Marys — for weeks.
The drought has outraged followers of the sauce, some of whom have taken to social media to categorical their dismay.
One shopper, Rob Fenwick, wrote on Twitter: “There seems to be a complete shortage and my life isn’t complete without it in my cupboard. Please stock the shelves again.”
A spokesman for the model’s proprietor, Kraft Heinz, mentioned it was working to resolve the issue.
