A cold snap in Europe has led to some UK supermarkets to have run out of peppers, which is the second time this year.
Morrisons are now limiting purchases of peppers to two per customer, however the supermarket are hoping to lift the limit on purchases in a week or so.
Waitrose has also been hit with supply issues and they are working hard with suppliers to get stock levels stable in the coming weeks.
British Retail Consortium director of food and sustainability Andrew Opie said, “Difficult weather conditions in the south of Europe disrupted harvest for some fruit and vegetables, including peppers.
“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.”
