Now is not the time to Stockpile

October 1, 2020 7:39 am

As we continue through this pandemic uncertainty around further local or national government restrictions continues,
but what we cannot do as a nation is stockpile our grocery shopping.

We all saw back in March with the threat of the first lockdown that customers started
stockpiling food from the supermarkets. Toilet rolls, tinned food, pasta and flour were the favourites.
This lead to the rationing of these products to make sure there was enough to go around.

Back then, manufacturers and supermarkets warned us to refrain from stockpiling as there was plenty to go around.
They are now repeating this same statement as a small percentage of customers begin to stockpile once again.

All over the UK, manufacturers have been increasing production to make sure there is enough of their
products to supply consumers for the remaining quarter of this year.

Likewise, supermarkets have been increasing their online shopping delivery slots to meet consumer demand.
All major supermarkets have said that they don’t foresee any issues with grocery supplies or delivery
slots if customers simply shop as they usually would.
