Musgrave CEO Noel Keeley has said that the group is experiencing high volumes of demand but its advice to the public is that there is no need for panic buying.
"Panic buying is an inconvenience to other customers, so we would reiterate the call to remain calm," he said in a statement.
"We continue to work to maximise availability and are working with suppliers to keep products flowing through the system."
Health 'Top Priority'
Keeley said that the health of its colleagues across its store network, our customers, the communities in which wit operate and its supply chain partners is its 'top priority' at this time.
He highlighted: "Musgrave plays an important role in Ireland’s food supply chain and accordingly has a significant part to play in the national effort in dealing with the COVID 19 challenge."
"We are doing this through our retail partners’ stores at the heart of towns and villages across the country," he added.
"We are taking every step possible to ensure that the food supply chain continues to function as normal and we are directly engaging with Government on the matter."
