  • We branches of all the three major supermarkets including:
    • OK
    • FoodWorld
    • TM/Pick N Pay
  • Choppies is a good supermarket but over the past two years we have failed to find a significant number of items that we consider to be staple items on most people’s grocery list. We will not be surveying it from now on but reserve the right to review that decision in future
  • Prices of most items are usually within 5% of one another. Where the prices seem too different it is probably because different brands of the item were surveyed in the two shops being compared. We look for the cheapest but popular brands. We don’t always look at the cheapest brand for example:
    • Nurse tissues are among the cheaper brands but they are not the cheapest. They are the cheapest widely accepted brand. Other cheaper brands are frankly rubbish.
    • We look at Sunlight, Surf and Maq when it comes to the cheapest washing powder brands, however, we don’t normally include brilliant although it is the cheapest brand out there. Housewives just don’t like or buy much of it with packets spending months on shelves.
    • We only include real white/long grain rice but don’t include broken white rice although it is cheaper.
    • For popular items, we list separate items, for example, dilutable drinks and bath soap. We don’t do this for items such as matches and candles. Most people just buy matches without really caring about which brand it is. People don’t usually care about brands here.
  • Also, the prices of fresh veggies tend to vary wildly between supermarkets.

Something to note

Despite repeated denials by both government and businesses, there is still an undeniable link between prices and black market exchange rates.

Gain Cash And Carry Prices

A word about inflation

Zimbabwe’s prices have been going up since 2018. This coincided with the introduction and rise of both the bond notes and RTGS dollar which were essentially the Zimbabwean dollar(ZWL). The government finally admitted this in February 2019 and passed laws marking its return in June of 2019.
