And so, Morrisons is limiting purchases of peppers to two a customer. The supermarket said it hoped to be able to lift the restrictions within the next week or once supplies improved.
Andrew Opie, the director of food and sustainability at the trade body the British Retail Consortium, blamed the weather.
“A few stores have implemented temporary limits on how much customers can buy to ensure availability for everyone. However, availability should improve for those impacted in the coming weeks as we enter UK growing season,” Opie said.
