Food and Grocery Council chief executive Katherine Rich says supply chain issues have eased and Auckland supermarkets should return to normal stock levels in a matter of days, RNZ reports. Bare supermarket shelves and missing products has been noticed, particularly in Auckland, with staff strikes, cost increases and cancelled shipping hitting supermarkets in New Zealand. “I haven’t heard of anything I’m really worried about but there’ll be things that will surprise us, because the global supply chain has really taken a hammering this year,” Rich said.
