We have done some research on the current prices of some grocery items. As always, our aim is to help you shop wiser so that you can save a few precious dollars. For example, 1 kg Blade beef is going for $93.99 at OK and $74.48 at Food World.

This is a difference of 26% or $19.51.

This week we went around three shops; Pick N Pay Joina, OK Julius Nyerere and Food World along Julius Nyerere as well. We have gathered prices for over 50 products. There seems to be a shortage of cooking oil on the market. We only found it in Food World and its being limited to two units per customer.

Cerevita, which was also scarce last week is now available in Food World and OK.

If you have other products that you would want us to cover you can leave your comments below the table.
