South Africa’s Competition Commission on Thursday recommended Shoprite’s retail unit, which houses the country’s biggest supermarket chain, be fined 10% of its turnover for anti-competitive behaviour.
Shoprite Holdings, South Africa’s biggest supermarket chain, said on Tuesday it would pay customers for reusing its newly introduced recyclable bag as it joined domestic rivals in efforts to curb plastic pollution.
South Africa’s Shoprite reported a surprise 3.8% fall in annual earnings on Tuesday, citing a currency devaluation in Angola and lacklustre trading in other markets abroad.
Workers at the retail chain store Shoprite say they have not reached an agreement with management regarding some working conditions.
The National Institute for Communicable Diseases says it still needs to confirm if a product taken off the shelves by Shoprite was indeed contaminated with listeria bacteria.
