Poor harvest hits cereal company

The cereal company Weetabix, based at Burton Latimer in Northamptonshire, has had to halt production on some of its products, as a knock-on effect of last year's poor wheat harvest.

They only use British Wheat, and say it's having to overhaul production methods on its 'Weetabix Minis' range, to combat the problem of poor quality crops. This has delayed output, but they hope to be up to full speed again soon.
