Co2 impossible to find, in Liguria there is no sparkling water from shop shelves

(ANSA) – GENOA, 04 AUG – Empty sparkling water shelves in a supermarket in Loano (Savona), where signs have sprung up to warn customers of the lack of the product. And also in many other shops in Liguria there is a shortage of carbonated products.

These are the effects of the lack of CO2 that has already forced the Sant’Anna company, the largest European producer of low mineral content waters, to stop production last month.

In the sales points of the Coop Liguria chain “the presence of products varies from day to day – they explain from the press office -. Many suppliers postpone deliveries and we are also witnessing an assault on the shelf as already happened with flour during the lockdown or pasta at the beginning of the war. We are starting to put up signs to limit purchases beyond family needs “.

Some smaller shops are pulling out crates of sparkling mineral waters of brands never seen in Liguria. But in addition to the increase in carbon dioxide prices, the increase in the cost of plastic and transport weighs on production. Many suppliers expect heavier loads to make fewer trips as fuel and gasoline increases.

A situation that Alberto Bertone, president and CEO of Acqua Sant’Anna, had already foreseen at the beginning of July. “The C02 companies explain to us that they prefer to allocate production to the healthcare sector. So – he stressed – the sparkling water risks running out: once the stocks in the supermarket and discount stores are finished, there will be no more bottles for sale” . (HANDLE).
