There's already a butter shortage, prices have been at an all time high for a couple of weeks.
Apparently it's all down to global warming, the mountain melted

I expect that the Aldi fish is not from the sustainable sources that Waitrose uses. Rally don't know this for sure, but Waitrose name their suppliers, use sustainable sources and pay their suppliers properly. Tesco is very hard nosed with its suppliers. You are at liberty to buy from where ever and decide if you wish to pay more for sustainability of our fish stocks and decent conditions for suppliers. If on a budget, buy from Aldi. They are definitely cheaper and stock a great deal of British food.

May i also point out that there's no such fish as a "Sea Bass". It's an effing Bass, NOT a Sea Bass.

Nemo, it really drives me mad that people refer to our beautiful Bass as 'Sea Bass' too - as for Basa, if people knew what it really is there is no way they would eat it!

Well, given that low milk prices have been driving UK dairy farmers out of business for the past five years, and that cheap imported EU milk has suddenly got 25% more expensive due to the change in the value of the , and that you can't just create a functioning dairy cow overnight, it is hardly surprising their is a shortage.
In the medium term this is a great opportunity for UK dairy producers. But it takes 3 years to grow a cow, and no one has been growing them while there is no market.
Given that most milk sales are now at least semi-skimmed, and all the milk in supermarkets has little Union Jacks on it, one does wonder what has happened to all the butter. Perhaps French milk put in a bottle in the UK qualifies for a Union Jack?

ALL British butter is made with British milk already.
