Woolworths supermarket CEO Brad Banducci’s personal message to shoppers NSW flood victims

Woolworths CEO Brad Banducci has made a personal address to customers affected by the NSW flood crisis.

As areas in Sydney and along the Mid North Coast battle the extreme weather conditions, many communities have been left without fresh food supplies with supermarket stocks reaching unsettling lows.

Flooding and road closures have interrupted deliveries to some Coles and Woolworths stores in NSW, meaning that milk, bread, meat, fruit and vegetables aren’t available to many. Other essential buys – such as nappies, baby formula and non-perishables – are also running low in flood-affected areas.

The weather event has forced Woolworths in Kempsey and Moree to temporarily close its doors, while Woolies in Taree is operating under restricted hours.

But as panic about dwindling food stocks hits many in the region, Banducci has reassured residents the supermarket giant is doing everything it can to bring in supplies for those who need them most.

7NEWS.com.au understands that choppers may be used to restock supermarkets in North Richmond on Tuesday afternoon, and Banducci has said Woolworths is working to safely re-route deliveries to alternate locations.
