Officers from the Fiji Competition and Consumer Commission (FCCC) will be conducting inspections in business establishments around the country throughout the Easter holidays.

The Commission says this will ensure compliance by traders and urged Fijians to be careful while carrying out their shopping.

FCCC chief executive officer Joel Abraham said inspections would be done by the teams in all the major divisions, including the Western and Northern divisions.

“… (Inspections) will be carried out in the usual areas of concern, like supermarkets and hardware stores, as well as inter-island shipping services,” Mr Abraham said.

“There’s a lot of movement to the outer islands expected in the long weekend so we need to look into logistics.

“As always, we prefer a collaborative approach to compliance, so I urge traders to be responsible and not commit any breaches of the FCCC Act.

“This will not only ensure that you do not get into trouble, but you will be creating a safe environment that will benefit your business.

“After all, customers will want to go somewhere that they trust.”
