Coles customers have taken to social media to share their frustration over frozen food shortages at their local stores.

Most customers have complained of having no frozen chips and ice cream available, while others have spoken of widespread freezer food shortages.

One Western Australia customer said the shortages had been happening at her local store for “over six months”.
“Why is there never anything at Coles Pinjarra?” she wrote in a Facebook post.
“For months, low stock, fridge sections have next to nothing. And is there a shortage on icecream? There hasn’t been any for weeks, unless it comes in and there is some sort of ice cream hoarder of Pinjarra.
“I don’t want to have to travel into Mandurah for s***. When I feel like icecream, I want it. And not the $10 plus tub either.”
Another wrote: “Yep we have noticed the same thing with everything in Coles Pinjarra.”
A third WA shopper said: “At my Coles, the Warwick store, they’re always out of frozen chips and Pepsi Max. They haven’t had frozen chips in weeks.”
Added another: “Mandurah is out of frozen chips again.”
Coles shoppers in Victoria and New South Wales also shared their frustration.
“No frozen chips at South West Rocks either,” said one NSW shopper, adding: “And heaps of the frozen veggies. It has been like this for weeks. What’s going on?”
Another wrote: “I’m in Melbourne metro area and we are having the same issues in all our stores too. There are heaps of shortages.”
One Melbourne shopper shared an image of the empty freezers at his local store.
“Coles, why is your Aintree Coles constantly out of frozen products,” he asked.
Another Facebook user responded: “Coles Haynes in WA looks exactly the same!”
Some Facebook users suggested that widespread flooding in Australia could be the cause of the shortages.
“The floods in our main produce areas, NSW and VIC have meant that these areas have been cut off,” one said.
“Unable to pick crops, if there is anything worth picking, can’t process, eg millions of gallons of milk can’t be delivered and just gets poured out.”
Added another: “Norco supplies Coles ice cream and their factory was inundated with flood water.”
