Another crisis in UK is about to raise the price of meat

Some UK meat processing plants will run out of carbon dioxide (CO2) within five days, forcing them to cease production and impact supply to food retailers
The jump in gas prices has forced several local energy suppliers to go out of business and close their fertilizer plants, which also produce CO2 as a by-product of their manufacturing process.
CO2 is used to stun animals before slaughter, vacuum-packed food to extend shelf life, and add gas to beer, cider and soft drinks. The solid form of CO2 is dry ice, which is used in food delivery.
The CO2 crisis has exacerbated an acute shortage of truck drivers in the UK, blamed for the impact of Covid-19 and Brexit.
