    Two comments regarding the potato movement in Greece: Greek consumers tend to be unable to properly understand price competition. There is a general idea that the higher the price of a commodity, the lower the quality. That is a completely irrational and paradoxical way of perceiving competition. When the potato movement appeared on the headlines, the main accusation was that they sell bad quality produce and this is how low prices can be explained. That was the primary propaganda line against the movement.
    Secondarily just for the records, food markets with no middlemen have faded recently with “solidarity meals”, where food is offered for free instead of being sold to layers of the society in need, becoming more popular.
