Supermarket prices in South Africa

Most independent travellers, such as backpackers or "self-catering" travellers, don't visit restaurants for breakie, lunch and/or dinner that often or at least not every day. We  therefore made a (price)list of the items that we think are in the average groceries basket of travellers. It hopefully helps planning your hols in South Africa.
