Consumer New Zealand says there is no need for people to panic buy toilet paper, RNZ reports. Essity mill in Kawerau – which produces Purex, Sorbent, Libra and Handee – has been shut since 9 August. It is New Zealand’s only domestic toilet paper producer. However, Caitlin Cherry from Consumer NZ said New Zealand imported a lot of toilet paper. While there was a bit of a shortage, supermarkets had assured people “that there is enough supply”.
