Questions for discussion:
- Summarize what the report says about grocery pricing strategies, consumers’ attitudes towards retail prices and government interventions?
- Do you think the industry will be facing a consumer backlash, when more learn about retail pricing strategies?
- Is current strategy so different to the pricing of other products and services in other industries, in your opinion?
