TESCO has been convicted of a breach of consumer law for not displaying the right price of goods.
The supermarket chain was fined €600 and ordered to pay costs of over €3,000 to the National Consumer Agency (NCA), who brought the prosecution in relation to nine alleged breaches of the Consumer Protection Act at stores around the country.
NCA Chief Executive Ann Fitzgerald said the conviction on one charge should remind all retailers of the need to display accurate prices to help hardpressed consumers make informed choices about what to buy.
