Australian supermarket giant Coles has introduced a two-item limit on frozen chips after flooding across the eastern coast impacted the supply of potatoes, according to a report by 1News. A Coles spokesperson told Nine that the limit, beginning on December 15, will likely be lifted within months.
“Poor weather in the eastern states has affected supply of some frozen potato products across the industry,” they said.
“We thank customers for their patience while we work hard with suppliers to minimise disruption and return stock to normal levels in the coming months.”
The cap applies to the entire category of frozen chips from wedges to crinkle cut, and will be removed once supply levels are back to normal.
