Ione Belarra’s attack on Juan Roig, president of Mercadona, continues to generate debate regarding food prices and profit margins, both for large supermarkets and for small producers. Thus, this Wednesday, January 25, Risto Mejide dedicated a large block in Everything is a lie to analyze to what extent supermarkets are expanding their profits, getting particularly wet in that open war between Podemos and the businessman.

The Cuatro program included the minister’s statements describing the director of Mercadona as “ruthless capitalist”, further considering “indecent that he is lining his pockets” at the expense of consumers. In addition, they echoed various studies and reports on profit margins at different points in the food chain, some of them conflicting, so the debate at the table in the space of La Fábrica de la Tele was served.

Mejide picked up the video and gave the floor to his collaborators, but was unable to remain silent in the face of the controversy, taking a step forward to position himself: “I find it indecent that we are targeting businessmen in this country in this way, indecent“, he asserted forcefully.

But the publicist went one step further, since he himself confessed to knowing Roig first-hand, which is why he felt obliged to come out in his defense, although precisely for this reason he should remain on the sidelines, as a mere moderator. of the discussion: “I shouldn’t say it because I have personally worked with him, I should be an objector on this issue, but I can’t“.

“This attack on businessmen seems unfair to me when, among other things, They provide employment and generate value for this country. I find it intolerable“, Risto reiterated on a couple of occasions, stressing that, in addition, in the case of Roig they have worked very well together: “The least it would be is ruthless, he is a great businessman“, he sentenced, thus definitively taking sides in the face of this controversy that has caused so much friction in the coalition government in recent days.
