Due to a lack of fresh produce, Lidl is the most recent supermarket to impose restrictions on the sales of specific fruits and vegetables.
Due to "a recent increase in demand," the business is capping sales of peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers at three per customer.
Some customers will now encounter empty shelves as a result of Tesco, Aldi, Asda, and Morrisons' similar actions.
After severe weather impacted harvests abroad, supermarkets are having trouble.
According to a Lidl representative, "unfavorable weather conditions in Spain and Morocco" had an impact on the availability of some salad items.
According to Lidl, "While we still have good availability in the majority of our stores, we have decided to temporarily limit the purchase of peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers to three items per person due to a recent increase in demand.". "This will make it possible for all of our customers to get the products they require. ".
George Eustice, a former environment secretary, predicted shortages would last three to four weeks on Sunday.
