Allergy information

However, the Morrisons website notes: “Due to exceptional demand, we cannot guarantee the content of boxes and are therefore unable to provide allergen advice, ingredient lists and other product information online at this time.”

Each box will contain packaged items with individual labels that provide this information, but the supermarket adds: “Please make sure you read these labels carefully to understand what allergens or ingredients are present in each product.

“If you need to avoid specific allergens or ingredients, we cannot ensure that the products in the box will be suitable for you.”
