Dubai-based wholesaler caught hiking price of onions, according to Dubai Economy
Dubai has urged the public to report any instances of price hikes in the emirate, following recent action taken against a wholesaler.
The move comes following Dubai Economy’s action against a wholesaler in the emirate who was found to have increased the price of onions “unreasonably”.
The Commercial Compliance & Consumer Protection (CCCP) – a sector within Dubai Economy – issued a violation notice over the incident, after officials had carried out an inspection on the foot of consumer complaints.
