Unit Pricing Remains Inconsistent

There are a number of dormant topics about various aspects of unit pricing. Consumers may have hoped or even expected some issues would have worked themselves out by now. This from Coles.

On the left a unit is a roll of Quick-eze, in the centre it is 100g of Quick-eze, and on the right it is 1 Quick-eze tab.

Not ‘priceless’ since none are free but the mindset is either priceless or cynical. How hard should it be to require standardisation? – Apparently too hard for our ‘regulators’.


Coles again, although I’ve note Woolies can also be equally careless. Unit pricing on Western Star 500gm blocks of butter.

It’s left to wonder how they manage the more complex task of correct shelf pricing, inventory and distribution?
