Consumer items which include foodstuff and emergency items have been placed within one of eight theme areas, with one theme being surveyed during each reporting period.
The eight themes are: Diary; Canned goods; Groceries; Meat & Fish; Household and cleaning; Toiletries; Medical and sanitary; and baby food.
The results of these surveys will be published in the national media so that consumer awareness can be heightened.
During the month of April 2017, the theme for consideration was “Meats, meat products and Seafood” and surveys were conducted at 10 supermarket outlets.
For the month of May the theme for consideration is “Canned Goods”.
