There have been reports of a resurgence in panic buying following news of a second wave of Covid-19. When the pandemic first began, supermarket shoppers found it difficult to get their hands on essentials like pasta, flour and toilet paper.

In an effort to curb panic buying and keep kitchens well stocked, Morrisons has released a new ‘Store Cupboard Essentials’ food box.

The company said, “This box features tasty items to help you prepare delicious meals at home.

“From essentials such as rice and pasta, to curry meal kits, sauce mixes and long life milk, there’s plenty of choice. You’ll also find a few treats in there too, such as sweets and biscuits, as well as household essential loo roll.”
