FCCC to constantly monitor retailers on keeping all products available

Retailers have been asked by the Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission to exercise their judgement based on customer and store locations to limit sales for customers so that everyone has fair access.

The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission says they will constantly monitor the situation and have asked traders to do their best to keep all products available to everyone.

It says if shortages are noted then other limits may be put in place, however this will only be done if absolutely necessary.

The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission says their role is to help make sure all Fijians can access the products they need.

It further says they are working very closely with importers, wholesalers and retailers to get products onto shelves as quickly as we can to meet this demand.

The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission says it is worth noting that the vast majority of products are not affected, and supermarkets and pharmacies are not seeing shortages, however, to make sure everyone has access to essential items, they have introduced some common-sense limits to essential products.

FCCC will monitor this situation and release advisories as required.
