The statement reads, “Due to changes in our manufacturing capability, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to discontinue Pods.”
“We don’t make these decisions lightly, and when we do, we always try to balance the expectations of our customers with the needs of our business.”
“We recognise some will be disappointed by this change, and we hope it’s not long before they find a new favourite treat from the Mars line-up.”
