15/09: Media statement: Countdown's response to Commerce Commission's draft report
Attribute to Spencer Sonn, Managing Director, Woolworths New Zealand:
We’re committed to continuing to work positively and collaboratively with the Commission as it works to complete the market study, and we see this process as a good opportunity to have a meaningful discussion about the grocery market. We have an unwavering commitment to contribute positively to Aotearoa, and as one of New Zealand’s largest employers, our team of more than 20,000 people work hard to deliver safe, fresh, and affordable groceries to New Zealanders.
We acknowledge that the Commission’s draft report identifies some areas where the sector could improve, and we look forward to being part of this to drive positive change for Kiwis.
A copy of our submission is here, and here is an infographic which summarises our views. We look forward to talking to our response further at the Commission’s conference in October.
