Nutella lovers might soon struggle to get their hands on the treat after ongoing strike action causes problems with the production. The world’s largest Nutella factory, Rouen, has slowed down production as a result of strike’s that have lasted for over a week. As a result of this, there has also been issues getting ingredients to the factory and it is currently operating below capacity. Other treats made in the Northern France plant have already stopped production altogether.
Nutella production has largely come to a standstill.
Rouen, the factory that makes a quarter of the world’s Nutella, has suffered from strikes which began on Monday last week.
Roughly 160 of the plant’s 350 employees have been on strike for over a week due to a dispute over pay, according to Fabrice Canchel of the Force Ouvriere union.
"Nutella production has largely come to a standstill," the union said.
This means the plant is currently only running at 20 percent of it’s capacity.
Not only have their been less workers at the factory, many of those who are on strike have blocked the access roads for trucks which means the ingredients are starting to run out.
