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?
