More Mongrel Please, Pierre!
Here's my opinion piece today in Supermarket News calling on the new Grocery Commissioner to put real focus onto market structure and leave the detail of misleading pricing etc to others.
Its been a big day for grocery news with the proposal for Foodstuffs North Island and Foodstuffs South Island to merge.Listen to Tex Edwards on this subject in depth on Morning Report, and my shorter contribution with Mike Hosking on NewsTalk ZB.
Not forgetting the outrage yesterday over Guyon Espiner's exposure of the Commerce Commission's highly questionable large scale use of a firm of PR consultants who appear to have been highly conflicted. Not a good look for the Commision - put I must point out that decision pre-dates Pierre van Heerden's appointment.
