Major supermarkets accused of destroying competition

Major supermarkets accused of destroying competition

Master Grocers Australia is calling on the Federal Government and the competition watchdog, to investigate major supermarket chains that are killing competition.

A report released by the group has found Coles and Woolworths are deliberately depleating competition, by opening oversized supermarkets to lock out smaller competitors.

Master Grocers Australia CEO Jos De Bruin says this behaviour, by the chains, is really putting at risk the loss of retail diversity, choice for consumers and true competition.

The Federal Opposition believes there is merit in the report, and says it highlights the case for a review of competition laws.
