Local supermarkets are not riding out difficult times with the public

2021.04.15


The Convenor of the DAB "Supermarket Price Concern Group" (the Group) Frankie NGAN said that they had revealed at a press conference in early March that the price of "Golden Phoenix Thai Hom Mali Fragrant Rice 5kg" sold by Wellcome had increased by 10% within six months. This reflects supermarkets had kept increase their prices during the epidemic. The latest survey conducted by the Consumer Council further confirmed this observation that price increases of supermarket products are very common under the epidemic and the poor economy. The Group demands supermarkets to fulfill social responsibilities and offer a "30% discount on all orders" immediately to help the public tide over this difficult period.​
