Calor has confirmed that it is to discontinue five of its smaller canisters from 1 February.
The cylinders being discontinued are Calor’s Cube, 3.9kg Propane, 4.5kg Butane, 6Lite Propane and 12kg Butane cylinders.
In statement, Calor said: “We realise this change will affect customers that rely on these sizes, but we know these changes are necessary to significantly improve our cylinder service.”
“Our existing range of cylinders is creating complexity within our supply chain.
“This means longer change over times and reduced filling capacity on high volume key sizes.
“That’s why we’ve taken the difficult decision to reduce our cylinder range, simplifying the business.”
Calor says there are suitable alternatives to the discontinued cylinder sizes within its range, or within the Campingaz range.
Those looking for a 3.9kg Propane can use a 6kg Propane, and those looking for a 4.5kg Butane can use a 7kg Butane, the supplier says.
Retail Stockists are currently being notified of the changes.
Last year Calor halted sales of its canisters on its own website, citing high demand and supply chain problems.
