UK supermarkets restrict the purchase of oil

What happened? UK supermarkets have placed limits on the amount of oil customers can buy due to supply-chain problems caused by russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Source. This was reported by Bloomberg.

Details. According to the report, Tesco allows three items per customer, while Waitrose and Morrisons have set limits on only two items each.

Most of the UK's sunflower oil comes from Ukraine. Restrictions are applied to that product as well as to olive and rapeseed oils at some supermarkets. Retailers are “working with suppliers to ramp up production of alternative cooking oils, to minimise the impact on consumers.”

The price of cooking oils and fats went up 7% and is nearly a quarter more expensive than a year ago, the Office for National Statistics said.
