The market study into the grocery sector is a step closer today with the Commerce Commission announcing it will release its draft report on Thursday week – 29 July.

It says it will deliver a brief presentation followed by a Q&A session, but due to the high interest, only media will be able to attend in person, with all others able to dial in to a live stream.

The Commission also intends to hold a consultation conference in Wellington between 21 and 24 September, with details to come.
