Tesco Oakham Rutland Fruit and Vegetables Shortages
Shortages due to poor weather in supplying countries like Spain.
Whilst shopping at Tesco yesterday I could not help notice how popular many salad items had become and its only February.
Notices say it due to supply problems.
Other reasons could be due to panic buying as customers fill their trolleys as soon as staff fill the empty shelves.
One customer said "you must grab it when you can"
As far as I know Tesco does not stock long life fruit and vegetables, I am guessing a lot of plastic bags are going to sit in people fridges until they pop them into the bin to join the mountain that is dealt with each week throughout the world
