The Czech Confederation of Commerce and Tourism, which group large and small retailers, has condemned as populism a government move to check on sharp price rises of butter.
The check was announced by prime minister Bohuslav Sobotka following price rises which have seen the price of a pack soar to more than 50 crowns.
Sobotka said he was puzzled by the confederation’s reaction since similar moves had been announced in other countries.
