Crumbs: Freighters end a UK biscuit shortage

Doncaster Sheffield Airport has helped UK consumers maintain their biscuit supply following a national shortbread…sorry, shortage.
The rich tea cargo team at the UK hub have welcomed two Boeing 777 freighters full of biscuits into the region in the last two weeks.
Dayle Hauxwell, cargo manager at the airport, said: “There has been a lot of press coverage about Britain’s biscuit shortage following the floods in December and we are pleased to hear that the factories hope to be up and running again this month.
“In the mean time we’ve been delighted to welcome two flights from Emirates full of the nation’s favourite biscuits.
“We’ve welcomed all sorts of different cargo over the years from a pride of Lions to last year’s consignment of tea, this time we’ve quite literally ‘taken the biscuit!’"
These flights also mark the first flights from Emirates SkyCargo to Doncaster Sheffield Airport.
Added Hauxwell:“We were delighted to welcome Emirates. This new relationship shows that our cargo operations are going from strength to strength and our reputation for handling cargo flights from around the globe is growing.
“Thanks to this new relationship the Great British Public have been able to enjoy a biscuit with their cuppa.”
