Boost for shoppers as major carbon dioxide supplier to restart production after government talks

The government has reached agreement with CF Industries to restart carbon dioxide production at its UK sites following talks between the company and Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng.

The US firm said last week that it had stopped work at its fertiliser plants at Billingham on Teesside and Ince in Cheshire because of a surge in gas prices.

That prompted a crisis in the food industry because the CO2 which is a by-product of the fertiliser manufacturing process is used to stun farm animals before slaughter as well as in the vacuum packing process.

It prompted warnings that shoppers could start noticing shortages in poultry, pork and bakery products within days.
