Sir: Your article on food prices and the way powerful supermarkets justify high prices (24 September) must have made many in Cornwall very angry.

Many small farmers and fisherman here receive a pittance for their produce. Recently one farmer who had received 8.5p per cauliflower saw one on sale for 85p in the local supermarket. When he queried it he was told that if they asked any less the customer would not believe it was good quality.
