Sainsbury’s has given a warning as travel bans to the UK could lead to shortages in supermarkets. The retailer issued a warning on “lettuce, cauliflowers and citrus fruit”.
What food will be affected?
Sainsbury’s stated it will look into other ways to get the affected produce to shelves.
The supermarket told Sky News: “We will start to see gaps over the coming days on lettuce, some salad leaves, cauliflowers, brocolli and citrus fruit.”
It added it is “sourcing everything that it can” and is “looking into alternative transport for products sourced from Europe.”
It stated it “hopes the UK and French governments can come to a mutually agreeable solution which prioritises the passage of produce and any other food at the ports.”
