Spain allows supermarket rationing to prevent shortages

Sharing is Caring!

Spanish supermarkets can legally ration consumer purchases of certain products under a new provision published Wednesday in the state’s official bulletin.

The text, which provides legal cover, says the restrictions can be applied “exceptionally and when there are extraordinary circumstances or force majeure that justify it”.

The move came as empty shelves appeared in many supermarkets due to the combined effect of a truck drivers’ strike and the Ukraine war.
