As we know too well, the pandemic has had a profound effect on all of our lives during the past two and a half years. UK supermarkets have seen major challenges themselves, initially with massive spikes in demand and a requirement to increase online ordering and fulfilment, followed by fluctuating demand patterns, before further constraints were enforced with the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19. Morrisons have had the additional complication of being taken over by the US private equity group Clayton Dubilier & Rice, for the sum of £7 billion.
