Spain: COAG Almeria asks consumers to not buy at DIA supermarkets
History repeats itself
The complaint and claim by COAG-Almeria regarding discounts on fruit and vegetables from third party countries during a campaign is history repeating itself, year after year.
"If consumers have some conscience they will not buy at DIA until the supermarket changes its sales policy: first care about what's coming from this country and then, if there's not enough, it's logical that products are acquired in other countries. There's no reason for this disloyal practice. We will not get tired of denouncing these kind of practices until we can have consumers on our side and give respect to our sector".
COAG-Almeria confirms that the price tag on the shelves says it comes from Brazil, but the tag in the fruit itself shows Senegal as origin. "Again we are confusing consumers with not unclear tagging. The Administration must be serious in controlling and sanctioning these kind of practices", concluded the note from COAG-Almeria.
