Cadbury has confirmed it has stopped making chocolate as UK continues to suffer from a water shortage. The confectionery giant said it has stopped production at its Bournville site after water company Seven Trent said it would have to cut the water supply today.
It comes just hours after the news that Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has halted production at two of its UK plants because of the ongoing water problems.
The carmaker has halted production at its Solihull site, near Birmingham, after water supplies in Britain were disrupted by burst pipes, the carmaker and water company Severn Trent said today.
Work will stop at JLR’s Castle Bromwich site, which employs 3,000, from Tuesday morning.
