Supermarkets across the United Kingdom have imposed restrictions on the purchase of sunflower oil. As noted, the restriction has been imposed because supply chain problems have emerged.
Richard Walker of Iceland Foods supermarket said: "Our supermarket has to sell one bottle of sunflower oil to just one customer."
It is worth noting that most sunflower oil in the UK comes from Ukraine, but due to the difficult situation in the country, there has been a supply chain problem at the moment.
Tom Holder also said that the retailers are cooperating with the suppliers to increase the production of alternative seed oil in order to minimize the impact on consumers.
According to statistics, seed oil is one of the important products whose prices have jumped very sharply.
What's more, cooking oils and fats have also risen by 7%, 1/4 more than a year ago. The statistics released by the Office for National Statistics on 13 April show this.
