Food wholesaler Booker said it was limiting sales of some lines to 10 cases per customer per day to prevent "sub-wholesaling".
The shortage has been felt in peak British Summertime, when the World Cup finals take place and the country tends to consumer more carbonated drinks when the weather is hot.
The chain says some of its pubs do not now have those drinks because of the carbon dioxide shortage that has hit the UK.
In a statement, Coca-Cola said: "We are now responding to an industry-wide issue that is impacting the supply of Carbon dioxide in the UK".
Tulip said it has been granted temporary one-week derogation from Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) so its QMS-assured Scottish pigs can be processed at its site at Ashton in England.
Mr McGowan said he did not know when to expect the next Carbon dioxide delivery from supplier BOC.
Coca-Cola's strategy has been to temporarily pause some production lines for short periods to limit the effect the shortage has on the availability of its products.
The company said it was extremely concerned about a lack of information from the gas sector about when the situation would be rectified.
Scotland's biggest pig farm was expected to stop slaughtering animals on Tuesday and at least two other United Kingdom pork processing plants were running low on CO2, The Guardian reported.
Poultry producers were affected as well, with the 2 Sisters Food Group reportedly halting the gas stunning of chickens last week, using electricity instead.
He said: "That's the frustrating thing - they're not telling us anything".
Last week, leaders of the UK's food and drinks industry warned the crisis was so serious it could harm production and asked the government to prepare to prioritise supplies.
A spokeswoman for the British Retail Consortium (BRC) said Carbon dioxide supply issues remained and retailers and suppliers were working hard to ensure food availability was maintained.
"However, it is likely that the mix of products available may be affected".
The problems are the result of a number of plants that produce fertiliser (CO2 is a by-product ammonia production and used to make beer) closing for the summer to undergo maintenance.
The beer industry overseas is now facing a shortage of carbon dioxide, and at least one wholesaler is rationing beer as a precautionary measure.
