Tesco, the biggest retailer in Britain, has followed Aldi’s lead and implemented a restriction on the number of items customers can purchase, becoming the fourth supermarket in the UK to do so.
Customers will now be limited to buying a maximum of three items per person peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes.
Asda and Morrisons had already announced similar restrictions for lettuce, peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes.
Sainsbury’s is currently the only one of the UK’s five largest supermarkets that have not implemented purchasing limits for shoppers.
The British Retail Consortium predicts that the supply disruption may persist for a few weeks as supermarkets handle a poor harvest in southern Spain and Morocco.
Additionally, UK farmers have not sown enough produce due to high energy prices.
An Aldi spokesperson stated that their company is also limiting purchases of peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes to three units per person to ensure that all customers can obtain what they need.
