Musgrave, the retail group behind grocery chains SuperValu and Centra, has contacted suppliers asking for information on the predicted effect of coronavirus on their supply chains.

In an email, seen by the Sunday Independent, suppliers have been asked whether there is any immediate, medium-term or long-term predicted effect on supply as a result of the coronavirus.

The email, which focuses on Musgrave's own-brand products, asks if there is a risk to own-brand product supply, if product components such as packaging or ingredients could be affected, what products could be affected and what plans were in place to mitigate these risks and ensure supply.
