PICS: Tesco is quickly running out of crucial products

Tesco stores in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland are quickly running out of many important products thanks to a price dispute with Unilever.

With the value of the pound at a catastrophic low, multi-national suppliers are trying to get British retailers to raise prices in order to absorb the loss.

Tesco has refused Unilever's proposal to increase prices on their goods by 10%, and Unilever has responded by no longer supplying their goods to British Tesco stores effective tonight. This includes Tesco stores in Northern Ireland.

Sky News Political Editor Faisal Islam has been documenting Tesco running out of Unilever products in real time. Products supplied by Unilever include Persil, Surf, Dove, Comfort, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, Elmlea, Colman’s, Helmann’s, Marmite, Knorr, Bertolli, Flora, Comfort and Pot Noodle.
