      Bennett Describes Food Industry Regulations


      According to economy Minister Bennett, the Food Act will work in threecore issues. The first is the regulation of the relationship between retailers to suppliers, to avoid excess power that one has over the other. The second  is designed to address the control of local monopolies of retail chains in certain cities or neighborhoods, and allow the regulator to require the sale of outlets. The third will require the food chains to send prices to a central database where consumers can make comparison shopping before they go to the supermarket.
