Greggs is the latest operator to be affected by supply issues, with the availability of certain products being impacted. A spokesperson for Greggs told MCA that the operator was suffering some short-term disruption to “a small number of product lines”, and the products affected may change from day to day, with the spokesperson denying media reports of a specific availability issue around its chicken bake product.

Like other operators, Greggs is currently having difficulties securing certain products for its stores, although it has denied media reports that its chicken bake product is being specifically affected.

A spokesperson for Greggs told MCA that the operator was not overly dependent on one particular product, with its broad product range helping to mitigate any disruption.

Images have circulated on Twitter this week of notices appearing in certain Greggs outlets highlighting a lack of product availability.

A statement from the company read: “There are no current supply issues with our chicken bakes and our customers can continue to enjoy these as they usually would. Unfortunately, like others , we’re seeing temporary interruptions in supply for some ingredients which occasionally results in shops not being able to maintain full availability on all lines. However, we have a wide range of choices in our menu for customers happy to buy an alternative.”
