Ahead of a major climate summit in Glasgow next month, chief executive Mark Schneider was in the UK to launch a range of non-dairy, plant-based alternatives to its milk and chocolate in an attempt to further reduce the company’s greenhouse gas emissions.
The Firm later tweeted reassurance to its customers, ‘We just wanted to reassure everyone, we make up to 12 million QUALITY STREET favourites a day, there will be plenty to go around this Christmas!’
And added, ‘Like all businesses we are managing a number of challenges at the moment, but we are working hard to mitigate them, and we’re not seeing a material impact on supply.’
And it poked fun at the situation by suggesting that the chocolates that get left in the tin could be a solution to the shortage, ‘There’s enough Green Triangles for everyone!’ followed by a crying with laughter emoji.
And B&M got in on the social media panic, by tweeting its response. ‘Phew, had us worried x’
Meanwhile, customers can pick up a personalised tin filled with their favourite flavours from selected John Lewis stores.
