Currently Edeka customers are again faced with empty shelves. Due to a change in delivery, private label mineral water is particularly scarce in many places. According to the supermarket, the problems are expected to be resolved by the end of May.

Edeka customers are currently having to reckon with the gaps on the shelves again. As the “Lebensmittel Zeitung” reports, private label mineral water is becoming scarce in many places. The reason for this is a change in procurement.
