Could there be a worldwide Nutella shortage???

It's possible. Workers at the largest Nutella factory in France are currently on strike which has brought production of the hazelnut spread to a standstill. The plant typically produces 600,000 jars everyday, which is a QUARTER of the total product produced worldwide!

Workers are seeking a 4.5% raise, better bonuses and better working conditions. Workers on strike have been barring trucks from entering or leaving the facility.

The next negotiation meeting is scheduled for June 13. You can read more on the story below.
