Some Tesco customers may have noticed a shortage of certain items in stores. The shortages have occurred due to an issue with suppliers.

Those visiting a small number of Tesco stores have noticed shortages of certain items.

A notice was spotted by a shopper in a Kent Tesco superstore which apologised for the lack of items.

It stated: “Due to supplier issues, we have limited availability on these products.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”


The post was attached to shelves in the meat aisle where pork products should have been.

The supermarket has confirmed there have been shortages on pork in certain stores.

This has been caused by an issue with suppliers and could take weeks to fix.

The retailer has not confirmed how many stores have been affected.

Rationing has been reintroduced in some supermarkets to ensure there are no more shortages.

Tesco recently warned customers against buying more than they need.

Tesco CEO Dave Lewis said panic buying is “unnecessary” and that it “creates a tension in the supply chain”.

Supermarkets including Morrisons and Lidl have also said they will put in restrictions if necessary. 

Many UK retailers have adapted rules throughout the coronavirus pandemic to help customers and to follow government guidance.
