Cooking oil shortage
#1
We did our usual!!! Monday shop trip today, and management is adamant she saw a sign restricting the amount of cooking oil you can purchase, has anyone else seen such a sign? and why I started in retailing as a par timer when in University and continued in one guise or another for another for over 50 years and can remember all sorts of shortages and restrictions from bread to sugar, but cooking oil? it cannot be anything to do with the situation in Ukraine surely? cooking oil and crude oil are about as far apart as Domestos and lemonade.

That's apparently an healthier option than using seed oils - https://www.betternutrition.com/diet-and...your-diet/

Both Lidl and Mercadona had signs up today limiting customers to 5L of cooking oil/seed oil. I have a feeling this subject is going to run......Johnrgby do you want to start a normal thread and we can add in our comments?

Elaine (Windermereladygolfer) is a great fan of James Martin and he is an advocate of butter in all his cooking 😊😊😊

Much better taste in most cases, IMHO.

Ok, cracked it apparently it is only sunflower oil, Ukraine is the main supplier of the product to The Canaries, so rationing is to prevent hoarding and subsequent price increases, now who woud have thought that people would be so selfish as to hoard things? Rolleyes Rolleyes Rolleyes Rolleyes

We're usually paying attention to the origin of the food we buy, never came across any oil from Ukraine.

I would personally worry more about the flour due to wheat prices going up like never before.
