As part of its mandate to ensure fair pricing in the marketplace, the Consumer Affairs Division of the Ministry of Trade and Industry has been monitoring the prices of items at supermarkets in Trinidad. Between 13th to 25th January 2021, the Consumer Affairs Division (CAD) conducted a retail price survey in person and in some cases via email of one hundred and thirty – two (132) selected items across thirty-nine (39) supermarkets in twenty (20) areas in Trinidad. An additional survey was conducted by the Consumer Affairs Unit (CAU) of eight (8) supermarkets in Tobago. The selected products, which impact consumers across all income groups, were derived from a Basket of Goods Survey conducted by the Consumer Affairs Division of the Ministry of Trade and Industry in 2014, which was repeated in 2019. The Division continues to use this basket of selected goods to monitor prices on a monthly basis.
