    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Representatives of the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Commerce (MEIC) found that in seven of the 48 supermarkets in the country that they visited to conduct a study on the prices of basic goods, there was different information at every checkout.

    Cynthia Zapata, director of the Office of Consumer Advocacy, said that such establishments were warned to correct the situation but are exposed to a financial penalty from the National Consumer Commission (NCC) which can range from 10 to 40 minimum wages .

    Despite this result, Zapata said it recognized the efforts that are being made for businesses to comply with regulations of the Price per Unit of Measure, which represents an information tool for the consumer to compare brands and quantity of products, which can mean significant savings for their pockets.

    The study was conducted between February 3 and 17 of this year in MegaSupers located in San José, Alajuela, Heredia, Cartago, Limón, Puntarenas and Guanacaste. Rates were monitored on 53 articles and a total of 9,183 records were obtained.
