Consumer disappointed by Supermarket report recommendations

From Morning Report, 8:23 am on 9 March 2022

Consumer NZ says the Commerce Commission's recommendations on supermarket competition are disappointing and should have gone much further.

The commission recommended making more land available for new stores and improving access to wholesale supply for smaller retailers.

But many recommendations are only voluntary.

Consumer chief executive Jon Duffy said that was not good enough.

He spoke to Corin Dann.
