The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission is working on a joint surveillance exercise with relevant stake holders to ensure customers buy the best during this festive season.
FCCC Chief Executive, Joel Abraham says they are liaising with the Consumer Council of Fiji, the Ministry of Industries and Trade as well as the Health Ministry’s Food and Safety Unit to ensure that all traders abide by the law.
”There are certain issues that we might cover and there are certain issues that they might cover so the idea is to ensure that we go in before this Christmas season rolls into stride, we are able to go and weed out issues that will affect consumers and really will affect their money.”
Abraham has made it clear that the surveillance will not only be limited to supermarkets.
FCCC currently has fifteen officers out in the field conducting surveillance to ensure all traders adhere to compliance tax.
