Woolworths offers INCREDIBLE discount on chicken mine for lucky shoppers

Lucky customers have discovered a huge discount on the price of minced chicken at two Woolworths stores.

The ground beef had been reduced from $6 to just $1.20 – a $4.80 saving at two stores in Victoria.

It was a lucky find for shoppers as the price of other grocery items skyrockets across the country.

A Woolies customer uploaded photos of the chopped rows with the heavily discounted price tags in front of them to a private Facebook page.

“Finally a huge score today,” they captioned the post.

“They even restocked the shelves one more time and were gone in no time.”

Other bargain hunters shared their surprise at the cheap deal in the comments.

“I don’t think my freezer would be big enough,” one user wrote.

“If I lived closer, I’d buy them all!” said another.

Obviously Woolworths was able to sell the ground beef for such a low price because they had significant oversupply.

Most of the mincemeat had five days left until the best-before date.

The huge drop comes as the price of other grocery items rises in the major supermarket chains.

Heavy rains at the beginning of the year in Queensland and New South Wales are responsible for spoiling Australia’s domestic lettuce growing and harvesting, reducing the local supply of produce.

Trade and export flows also influence the domestic supply of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Brad Banducci, CEO of Woolworths, which runs Australia’s largest supermarket group, revealed that the company had already seen price increases of two to three percent earlier this year, with more increases in supplier fees expected soon.

Since prices for fresh produce are higher than for dry and packaged consumables, Cain predicted that budget-conscious shoppers would be forced to live on traditionally cheaper canned or frozen foods.

He also predicted that Aussies will stop eating out at restaurants in favor of home cooking, which will increase sales of sustainable foods.

Woolworths had previously announced that they would freeze the prices of their household goods until the end of the year.

The retailer promised customers it will keep pantry, meals, cleaning and baby supplies the same price, despite growing inflation.

These supplies are: flour, sugar, coffee, pasta, frozen peas, shredded cheese, bread rolls, bacon, yogurt, juice, diapers, and washing powder.

Brad Banducci, CEO of Woolworths, told Daily Mail Australia that he is determined to ensure customers ‘get their Woolies value’ as food prices continue to rise.

“The challenges we have worked on together over the past two years are unparalleled – from droughts and fires to Covid, floods and shortages of supplies and now inflation and pressure on family budgets,” he said.
