The Commerce Commission released a draft report analysing competition within the grocery sector. The initial findings are not promising for the consumer, highlighting a lack of competition leading to high prices and a smaller range of products. Conor first spoke to students about their experiences with grocery shopping, seeing what the current consumer attitudes are towards groceries. Conor then interviewed Senior Lecturer Dr. Bodo Lang of the University of Auckland for a deeper analysis on the report, touching on problems, solutions, and government possibilities.
