after, after Mustard deficiency And the’oilOther products tend to disappear from our supermarket shelves. This is the case for charcoal used in barbecues, as well as sandwiches and even water bottles. What confuses many consumers.

When it’s hot, we obviously buy a lot of water, a lot more drinks than usual, so we have a higher consumption rate, and the stores don’t necessarily have to be stocked in the right quantities. So there is no shortage of bottled water and there never will be.”
