Food retailers urge the public to buy responsibly
UK food retailers have come together through the British Retail Consortium to write a joint letter to reassure the public about the extra steps they are taking to keep shops stocked with goods during the coronavirus crisis.
It also calls for them to be considerate in the way they shop and not to panic buy.
The letter has been published in adverts in national newspapers.
Speaking on behalf of the retailers, Helen Dickinson, BRC chief executive, said: “Retailers are working incredibly hard to keep shops well stocked and deliveries running as smoothly as possible. In the face of unprecedented demand as a result of coronavirus, food retailers have come together to ask their customers to support each other to make sure everyone can get access to the products they need.”
Retailers signing the letter include Sainsbury’s, Co-op, Lidl, Tesco, Aldi, Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Asda, Iceland, Morrisons, Ocado and Costcutter
