Countdown categorically denies hiking prices, for no reason. 

Since the country went into level 4, some shoppers have claimed supermarkets have increased prices.  

But Countdown Corporate Affairs Manager Kiri Hannifin told Mike Hosking that's not true. 

"The only thing that ever goes up and down is produce, and that's all supply. So if there is no kumara, the prices are higher."
