Colmans Mustard!!!

Another thread running which gives Turkish prices for Western food reminds me of the outrageous price for Colmans Mustard.

In Fethiye area gramme for gramme its more expensive than Platinum.

Not a big fan of it myself but didn't believe the rumours about its exhorbitant price until I saw it myself.


Can anyone tell me why mustard in particular is so dear?

Re: Colmans Mustard!!!

Can't answer your question, but why not take some and use it as currency, doesn't weigh too much, is there a market for it in uzumlu, there may even be addicts who would pay well over the top. Just a thought

Re: Colmans Mustard!!!

Of all foodstuffs it must be one of the biggest mark ups and I have never found out why mustard in particular is so overpriced!!!!

Re: Colmans Mustard!!!

Someone who lives here paid 20tl for a bottle of Sarson's vinegar. When I asked why, she said "Because it's Sarson's". I said "No, it's vinegar"

Supply and demand = profit, plus the profitability of shelf space. Why take up a given shelf space to make say 5 profit per week when you could make 50 profit per week by displaying something else. So the catch is if ex pats want a slow selling item I have to charge a premium price to maximise the profitability from my shelf space.

Supermarkets have all this worked out in order to obtain a % profit per square footage of shelf space, of course there are other elements that kick in like loss leaders and low margin but high volume.
