Coles chief operating officer Matt Swindells:

‘Fruit and vegetable shortage crisis will continue for weeks longer’

Coles chief operating officer Matt Swindells said the shortages in specific categories like lettuce, berries, and beans would last “probably a few weeks” longer. “The berries will recover quicker, but the lettuce is quite delicate as a product to grow, so that might take a little bit longer,” he said.

But he pointed out there were “other products across produce that are in abundance.” “Pumpkin is cheap, and when it is cold and wintry, pumpkin and pumpkin soup will go quite far. The kids will love it and still get their healthy fruit and veg,” he said. That is why it might be advantageous to try new recipes.
