While the increasing interest rates are exacerbating the cost of living crisis for Australian residents, a recent report revealed some major supermarkets made large profits in 2022–23. Woolworths, for example, made net profits of $1.62 billion.

Federal Government has announced a review into the food and grocery code of conduct, investigating the alleged price gouging by Australian supermarkets.
