Cadbury chocolate bars have been banned from NHS buildings due to a row over prices.
The firm which supplies hundreds of NHS facilities with chocolate are refusing to stock best selling brands like Dairy Milk, Wispa and Crunchie.
Cadbury’s American owners Mondelez put up the price of hospital snacks at the time NHS Supply Chain was told to save £300 million.
A message on the NHS website says: ‘We previously informed you of a supply issue with all products in the Cadbury range. Mondelez requested a price increase we are not prepared to accept on behalf of our customers.’
It added: ‘All products in the Cadbury chocolate range from this supplier will be unavailable to order.’
NHS Supply Chain, which is part of logistics company DHL, supply over 80 NHS trusts across the country.
The Mirror reported the company has already slashed the number of product lines it offers from 600,000 to 315,000 to improve efficiency.
Metro.co.uk has contacted Mondelez for a comment.
