Name the most overpriced food item

Post by enidhi on Mon Mar 10 2008, 11:27

Which food item do you think is the most overpriced compared to its manufacturing cost?

Consider a bread sandwich – For Rs 10 you get a whole loaf of bread. Still, a bread sandwich made of 2 slice of bread, couple of pieces of tomato/cucumber, a pinch of chutney and a little sauce is priced around 10-15 Rs.

Or soups-for what reason a cup of clear vegetable soup is priced at Rs 30 to Rs 50?

Note: I don’t expect food vendors to do charity- They’ll have several overheads like rent, salary etc and need to keep a profit margin too. But in spite of keeping enough provision for such things prices of some items are difficult to justify… At least that’s what I feel.

Your thoughts please…
