Spanish dairy producers are halting production as a four-day truckers’ protest over fuel prices started disrupting supply chains across the country.

The supply of goods needed to make dairy products has “been interrupted” by the protests, as has distribution to retail chains, dairy industry federation Fenil said in a statement Thursday. Supplies of fish, fruit and vegetables have been impacted by the demonstrations, according to local media reports.
