Threat To Supplies In Supermarket Price War

Irish shoppers are being assured their favourite brands will stay on supermarket shelves – for now.

SuperValu, Centra and Dunnes Stores are caught in a price war with the producers of brands like Lyons, Hellmann’s and Persil – which wants to hike prices by 19%.

Unilever – which has resolved a similar dispute with Tesco in the UK – is trying to raise prices following a fall in the pound’s value since the Brexit referendum.
