Having unit prices per unit of weight or per unit of count is a breach of the UP Code which requires that only one unit of measure be used for the unit pricing of a product by a retailer and that must be the unit of measurement by which the grocery category is most often supplied.
So, depending on what is considered a retailer, either all the tea bags sold in one shop or in all the company’s shops should be unit priced by count or by weight (per 100g).
In the past we have talked about which is most useful to consumers for tea bags, a unit of count or per 100g but I don’t think we reached a consensus on that…
BTW if the retailer decides to use count as the unit of measure for tea bags if most of the tea bags on offer are in packs of more than 40 tea bags they all should be unit priced per 100 bags.
The label with the unit price $3.30 per each is completely non compliant since it refers to the complete pack!
Excellent examples of a retailer not complying with the Code.
