The Migrolino is a different company which btw also sells beer and wine
The drinks in Zurich HB are all sold by the same company which runs 16 take-aways and restaurants. The Migrolino is one of the very few exceptions and btw cheaper than any of the other snack bars...

Sure. the owners of Migrolino-shops are NOT Migros owned but purchase products from Migros -- just as the owners of COOP PRONTO Shops purchase products from COOP

One would know this if one tried to open a business in there. All belongs to one company, just under different names, mafia style?

Just received my 2016 Health Insurance premium notification, up nearly 20%!! I thought the increase for Kanton Zürich was supposed to be 3.6%!

Thats presumably 'basic' insurance where they can't asses risk by age.

Re: Being Switzerlanded - [ Veteran Style ]

My employer had an arrangement with a medical insurer, who gave corporate discounts upto 25% on some complementaries for employees and dependants.

The insurer says that FINMA is no longer permitting any corporate discounts on the complementaries and the increases have been 10 - 15% overall for some.
