Anger Grows As Uncle Tobys Becomes Latest Popular Brand Axed From Supermarkets

2 min read

A price dispute is at the heart of the removals. 

A recent standoff over price hikes by key suppliers has seen major supermarket chains Woolworths and Coles axe popular products from their shelves, and consumers are not happy Jan.

According to Daily Mail, the most recent brand to suffer this fate is Uncle Toby’s, with their oats products getting the boot after a price dispute between Woolies and Nestlé. 

Our furry friends have also been left wanting after Mars-supplied pet food disappeared from Coles and Woolworths supermarkets. 

Pet owners have faced empty shelves where Whiskas, Pedigree, My Dog and Dine would normally be stocked.

Unsurprisingly, hordes of Aussie shoppers have vented their frustrations on social media after finding empty shelves. 

The big worry is the price war between Nestlé and Woolies as the manufacturing giant owns over 2,000 popular brands such as Milo, Maggi, Nespresso and Allen’s.

Nestle's media release says that the price of products will be impacted because of the drought affecting farmers in Victoria. 

So, at the end of the day, it’s the bloody rains’ fault.
