  • The caption to the clip says it was filmed at a Melbourne Woolworths on Sunday

A video has been posted online appearing to show a group of shoppers working together to buy a large haul of baby formula tins from the same supermarket.  

Matt Ward filmed the video on Sunday at a Melbourne Woolworths supermarket. 

‘Baby formula should be in glass cabinets with limited purchases. There was 8-10 runners going back and forth,’ Mr Ward said. 

In a photo accompanying the video, five trolleys can be seen lined up next to a wall out of sight from the Woolworths store 

In the video a man can be seen carrying two tins of baby formula from the supermarket to trolleys lined up behind another store. 

Two woman then walk off each carting a packed trolley behind them.

The trolleys look to be filled to capacity with tins of baby formula. 

Mr Ward said the group looked to have an efficient system in place.  

‘They would each buy two baby formulas and come out and put the baby formula in the shopping carts,’ he told Yahoo News.

‘This process was repeated time after time. Some of those carts were full, possibly 15-20 in each cart.’ 

Woolworths told Daily Mail Australia that a two tin transaction limit applies on baby formula in their stores.  

‘We have a two tin transaction limit on baby formula in place and our store teams work hard to ensure customers have access to stock when they need it.’ 

‘Baby formula stock was available at our QV store over the weekend and remains available today.’ 

‘We encourage any parents who find their chosen baby formula is unavailable on the shelves to speak with store management, so we can help get them stock as quickly as possible.’
