Aldi says it has lifted quantity restrictions on nearly all its products.

The supermarket says the move follows a return to more consistent levels of trading across its stores.

The are a small number of exceptions, the company says, which will continue to have a four unit restriction placed upon them, including for example hand wash.

The restrictions were put in place on March 12 after bulk buying led to constrained supply.

The German chain also said customers can now buy up to €50 worth of goods using contactless, following an increase in the limit. 

The company said contactless transactions have increased by 6% since the movement restrictions were introduced on March 12.
