Consumer Council expands its scope on supermarket price survey Now collecting supermarket prices from 8 local areas


Consumer Council expands the scope of its supermarket price survey this October to collect prices of over 300 products from almost 100 supermarkets in different areas of Macao. The Council has also updated the searching system of its 'Supermarket price information platform' website for consumers' better navigation and for making better price comparisons. Consumer Council indicates that as consumers demand for more price information and the number of local supermarkets keeps on increasing, supermarkets have become an important location for consumers to purchase daily commodities. The Council has not only expanded its supermarket price survey work by adding the amount of products surveyed and the number of chain supermarkets, but also updated and enhanced its website and the functions of its iPhone and Android smart phone 'Supermarket price information platfrom' apps. Starting this October, the Council further expands the scope of its supermarket price survey work by collecting prices from more supermarkets. With reference to the local six parishes and the number of supermarkets in each parish, the Council has divided around 100 supermarkets into 8 areas for price collection. The Council collects prices from these supermarkets all over Macao monthly for the provision of a more comprehensive database for consumers to check prices of several hundreds of products directly according to their desired locations. The Council now collects prices of over 300 products, such as cooking oil, rice, and canned foods, etc, in 12 different categories. The 'Supermarket price information platform' website has also been updated. Consumers may now choose their own parishes, check the price information of all supermarkets in their parishes, and make price comparisons. The Council indicates that similar updates will also be launched later for both its iPhone and Android apps.
The areas to be surveyed in the expanded price collection work this time include supermarkets in N. Sra. de Fátima Parish (Areia Preta and Venceslau de Morais). The latest 'Supermarket Price Survey' is now available on the Council's website (www.consumer.gov.mo), and the 'Supermarket Price Information Platform' iPhone and Android apps. The survey is also available free of charge at the offices of Consumer Council, IACM's Iao Hon and S. Domingos Markets, bookstores and libraries. Consumers may also access the resources through WAP channels on their mobile phones. For enquiry, please call 8988 9315.
