Halloumi 'heartbreak'

Halloumi shortage in Britain leaves shoppers heartbroken

It is a must-have accompaniment at trendy barbecues, but Britain is facing a halloumi shortage in the hottest week of the year.

Now the main producer, Pittas, is sending emergency supplies across Europe by road to stores that do not want to wait the normal four weeks for it to arrive by sea.

A team from the Roslin Institute at Edinburgh University, where Dolly the sheep was cloned, is helping Cypriot farmers to increase their milk production to boost halloumi yields.

The institute’s Ricardo Pong-Wong said: ‘The team in Cyprus are doing a fantastic job and they are already seeing benefits.’

There's no UK halloumi shortage, supermarkets insist...

Two of the UK’s biggest supermarkets have denied claims that Britain is facing a halloumi shortage.

Tesco and Sainsbury’s have hit back at reports that high demand has led to the delicious cheese flying off shelves quicker than it can be supplied.

“We don’t have any problems with our halloumi supply,” a spokesperson for Sainsbury’s said today. Tesco also said there was no issue.
