Kieno Kammies interviewed Business Insider SA Editor Helena Wasserman about the findings.

We did it last year as well… On average, the price hikes were 5%... CNA’s prices actually came down… a rise of more than 5% at Checkers and Shoprite, but their baskets were still the cheapest overall… According to us, Shoprite and Checkers have the best deals… definitely…
