Milking: Arla dairy farm supplies milk to around 2,400 UK stores every day
The dairy giant, which supplies milk to some 2,400 stores in the UK every day, had been unable to supply an average of 10 percent of its stores due to a lack of drivers, although this had risen to a quarter – some 600 stores – by Saturday. said Amirahmadi yesterday.
In addition to increasing the driver pay, Arla had also offered a £2,000 sign-up bonus, similar to other companies, such as Tesco.
