Bread stocks depleted during bad weather

BREAD stocks during bad weather are struggling to meet demand in the wake of Warry’s bakery closing down, shops have said.
The bakery ceased production last month, forcing smaller retailers to look elsewhere for their daily bread.
But the resilience of the system is now being called into question after shops reported that recent periods of bad weather had caused problems with getting supplies to the island.
Contree Mansell stores owner Alison Robinson said she was left with no bread at all on a Saturday when the boat did not make it in. And the new bread-ordering system means she has to place orders 48 hours in advance, double the previous 24.
It is not all bad news, with sales at Senner’s Bakery rising and demand increasing to such an extent it is installing new machines to increase production.
A spokesman for Cimandis owners Sandpiper denied there were any problems.
