Supermarkets in Labasa have started implementing control measures on products they sell.

It is also asking consumers to be considerate of others who also have to feed their families.

Items under controlled buying include cooking oil, sugar, rice, dhal, flour, toilet paper and mineral oil.

Labasa Chamber of Commerce President Satish Kumar says the control measures have been put in place as a deterrent for those who are bulk buying for nothing.

Kumar says placing control measures is a good thing as it ensures that there are enough supplies for everyone, including the elderly in society.

He adds, the control measures option was discussed during a meeting of all business owners in Labasa this week.
