JOHANNESBURG - Whitey Basson, Shoprite CEO, gives some ideas on how to deal with the high food prices.

Basson says he admits food prices have shot up, but there are ways to work around this, such as substituting certain food items.

For example, the potato price has gone up because of the drought, but consumers can substitute potatoes for pasta.
