ON the back of rising COVID-19 cases in Victoria, two major supermarkets have reintroduced limits on key staple products.

The limits only apply to Victorian stores.

Woolworths has introduced a limit of two packs per customer, per shop, for the following items:

  • Toilet paper
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Paper towel
  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Pasta
  • Mince
  • UHT milk
  • Eggs
  • Rice

The following purchase limits are now in place at all Coles supermarkets in Victoria:

  • Toilet paper 1
  • Pasta 2
  • Hand sanitiser 2
  • Mince 2
  • Paper towel 1
  • UHT milk 2
  • Flour 2
  • Eggs 2
  • Sugar 2
  • Rice 2

Coles Group CEO Steven Cain said the health and safety of customers and team members remains Coles’ top priority.

“Following discussion with the federal and Victorian governments as well as other retailers, Coles is implementing temporary purchase limits for our Victorian supermarkets to help us manage demand for key staple items,” he said.

“We ask that customers continue to shop normally so that everyone can have access to the food and groceries they need.”
