Georgiadis: The “Household Basket” Will Be Applied Next Week

ATHENS – “This week we will have the vote on the amendment for the household basket, which will be implemented next week as soon as we have the official approval of the Competition Commission,” Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis said in an interview with radio RealFM on Monday.

“The competition between supermarket chains over which one will put together the best basket will give many options to consumers,” Georgiadis said, explaining that the government will not restrict the choice of products that are included in the basket, beyond requiring that it contain at least one product of certain specific types. “Each chain will present its own basket every week. Each chain will have its own commercial policy in terms of its basket,” he added.


ATHENS - Well-known actor and director Petros Philippidis was found unanimously innocent on a charge of serial rape of a fellow-actress by an Athens Mixed Jury Court on Wednesday.
