Last week we put out a piece on more consumers starting to notice that many food items are getting smaller, although they are paying the same or more.
Here's what the public have said on social media about the article and the items they've noticed.

Sugar has been reduced and artificial sweetners have been added to most of the soft drinks. I don't recall them mentioning changes in soft drinks formulations. They have reduced the 500ml to 440ml and the 330ml is due to be reduced to 300ml. Health implications are mentioned.— Robert Lategan (@RobLategan) February 11, 2018

Oh yes, it started with frozen chicken pieces a few years ago, now it’s even with prepackaged fresh vegetables .... & I guess they think we all born yesterday. When it’s a monopoly, you forced into participation 😔— Noddy (@NoddyPeach) February 10, 2018
