The strain supermarkets are under due to Covid could be starting to ease.

Foodstuffs North Island CEO Chris Quin says they're feeling like they're through the worst of it.

He told Mike Hosking since January 23 at peak they've had 1100 of their team unable to work due to Covid.  

Quin says they're now down to under 500 in that position, and only 40 of those are from supply chain teams.
