Woolworths offers INCREDIBLE discount on chicken mine for lucky shoppers

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

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

It was a fortunate find for the shoppers as the price of other grocery items skyrockets nationwide. 

One Woolies customer uploaded pictures of the rows of mince with the hugely discounted price tags in front to a private Facebook page.

One shopper uploaded pictures of the cheap deal to a private Facebook page and said they had made a ‘huge score’ 

‘Finally got a huge score today,’ they captioned the post.

‘They even restocked the shelves once more and were gone in a flash.’ 

Other bargain hunters shared their astonishment over the cheap deal in the comments.

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

‘I would buy them all if I lived closer!’ said another.

It’s understood Woolworths was able to sell the mince for such a low price as they had a significant oversupply. 

Most of the mince had five days left until it expired.  

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

The heavy rains in Queensland and New South Wales early in the year are responsible for spoiling Australia’s domestic lettuce growing and harvesting, reducing the local supply of products.

Trade and export flows also affect the domestic supply of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Woolworths chief executive Brad Banducci, who runs Australia’s biggest supermarket group, revealed the company had already seen price boosts of two to three per cent earlier this year, with more supplier fee increases expected soon. 

As fresh produce prices outstrip dry and packaged consumables, Mr Cain predicted budget-conscious shoppers would be forced to live off traditionally cheaper canned or frozen food.

He also foreshadowed that Aussies will stop eating out at restaurants in favour of cooking at home, with sales of long-lasting food items set to lift.

Woolworths had earlier announced they would freeze the prices of their household essentials until the end of the year.

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

These essentials include: flour, sugar, coffee, pasta, frozen peas, shredded cheese, bread rolls, bacon, yoghurt, juice, nappies, and laundry powder.

Woolworths CEO Brad Banducci told Daily Mail Australia he was committed to ensuring customers ‘get their Woolies worth’ as food prices continue to soar. 

‘The challenges we’ve worked through together in the last two plus years have been unparalleled – from droughts and fires to Covid, floods and supply shortages and now inflation and the pressure on household budgets,’ he said.
