Supermarkets start rationing cooking oil as supplies are decimated by war in Ukraine 

Supermarkets start rationing cooking oil as supplies are decimated by war in Ukraine 

As a result, all are now being rationed both in-store and online in a number of major supermarkets. Shoppers are restricted to three bottles of cooking oil each in Tesco and two in Waitrose and Morrisons.

Images have also been posted on social media of signs in Iceland’s stores limiting sales of two-litre and five-litre bottles of sunflower oil to one per customer.

Tom Holder from the British Retail Consortium said the restrictions are a temporary measure ‘to ensure availability for everyone’.

Tesco said: ‘We have good availability of cooking oils in stores and online. To make sure all of our customers can continue to get what they need, we’ve introduced a temporary buying limit of three items per customer on products from our cooking oil range.’

A spokesman for Waitrose said: ‘We are working to ensure customers continue to have a choice of cooking oils.’

A spokesman for Sainsbury’s said: ‘We are working closely with our suppliers to make sure customers continue to have cooking oils to choose from, including olive oil, vegetable oil and rapeseed oil.’
