Supermarket customers have been left fuming after noticing a change to certain Asda stores.

Disgruntled shoppers took to Twitter after noticing Asda had opted to stop selling loose vegetables in some stores.

The reported decision means people would be unable to buy a single fruit or veg.

Apparently some shops now only sell them in pre-packaged bags.

Shoppers reported that their local store no longer stocks loose potatoes, courgettes or apples.

“Most consumers don’t want food or packaging waste!” one customer said, referring to the fact that they’d be forced to buy larger quantities.

Another said: “I like to buy loose fruit and veg so that I am in control of what I am eating! I am the customer!!”

When contacted, a spokesperson for Asda explained: “We want to offer our customers a great range of fresh produce and are always looking at the best way to do this.

“After analysing customer buying habits we decided to trial removing some loose produce items from our stores where our research showed customers preferred buying in packs.

“Our plan was to listen to customer feedback on this trial before making any permanent changes, and we will do this.”
