Our Supermarkets are Predators

Australia has more supermarkets per capita than any other country in the world and the two main players, Coles and Woolworths, control 80% of the market. This has led to very unhealthy competition policies from them, they have borrowed that word from Dr Who ---- "Exterminate!!!!!"
