    British supermarkets rationing vegetables; adverse weather conditions in Europe

    “Due to continued weather problems in Spain there is a shortage of iceberg lettuce”, a notice in a Tesco store read.

    British supermarkets have begun rationing vegetables, as adverse weather conditions in Europe have led to a shortage of products in UK stores. On Friday Tesco said customers will be limited to buying a maximum of three iceberg lettuces per visit, adding bad weather in Spain had triggered “availability issues”, although it added suppliers were looking to resolve the issue.
