ITEM 1 Average Price of Vegetables is Low - Retail Prices Must Be Adjusted - The Sangyo Keizai (Tokyo) - 22 Jan 46. Translator: T. Ukai.
Full Translation:
Vegetable prices have gone up since auction sales were introduced after the abolition of price control. However, average prices are lower than expected while vegetables of low quality are low in price. The average prices since the last ton days of November 1945, given below were published by the Vegetable and Fruits Control Company, TOKYO (TOKYO SEIKA BUTSU TOSEI KAISHA). Retailers are apt to make a good profit from commissions, and the effect of the auction sales cannot be judged if the retail prices do not reflect the auction prices:
