The supermarkets included in the measure must have at least one product from each product category included in the household basket at an affordable price

From Wednesday, 2 November, the “household basket” is in force according to the Ministerial Decision signed by the Minister of Development and Investments, Adonis Georgiadis. The aim of the measure is to ensure low prices for a group of consumer goods, determined by the ministry, while each supermarket company will autonomously choose the codes of the products to be included in the basket and their prices.

According to the relevant legislation, the supermarkets included in the measure must have at least one product from each product category included in the household basket at an affordable price, especially compared to other products in the same category.

These products will be marked with the special mark established by the Ministry of Development both on the shelves and in company advertising.

Under the same arrangement, products included in the “household basket” are checked, on a priority basis, for compliance with the provision on unfair profiteering. Also, the products in the list can be varied every time a new list is sent by participating chains to the Ministry of Development and Investments.
