Woolworths predicts prolonged vegetable shortages

Woolworths has warned of troubling weeks ahead as extreme shortages across fresh produce continue to cause problems. The retailer gave a grim insight into the month ahead in its latest Fresh Market supply update. It predicts that customers may need to get used to seeing shelves looking quite bare.

Shoppers have been informed that fresh herb supply had been so significantly affected that it was unlikely to be available in usual quantities until August.

“You might notice gaps in our supply of fresh herbs due to poor weather conditions. We’re expecting availability to get better from August,” the update read. Consumers aren’t just facing a herb-free July; a host of other fresh items will be unavailable until late next month. Zucchinis, green beans, baby spinach, and salad bowls are some of the items the retailer warned would be difficult to properly replenish until later next month.
