GERMAN SUPERMARKETS TO INCREASE FOOD PRICES 20-50% FROM MONDAY
Aldi: (grocery) Purchase prices should increase by up to 50 percent
Aldi (german discount supermarket) does not want to give exact figures. According to Funke information, however, the group assumes that the purchase prices for groceries could become between 20 and 50 percent more expensive in the next few weeks.
Meat, sausage and dairy products are to become “significantly more expensive” from Monday, as the group confirms. According to information from our editorial team, a surcharge of around 30 percent is planned for butter.
Because of the war, there is currently no (livestock food) supply. Because there is no feed for the animals, fewer pigs, cattle and above all chickens are raised. “Food in Germany now costs more money than ever before,” writes the agricultural organ “Agrarheute
Because of their sheer size alone, Aldi Süd and Aldi Nord are trendsetters when it comes to pricing in German food retail. “We expect that the sales prices in the entire trade will rise considerably in the coming months,”
“Aldi will remain the price leader. Because of their simple structures, discounters are better positioned than full-range retailers when it comes to costs. That’s why we won’t have to increase the sales prices as much as supermarkets and specialist retailers,” says Florian Scholbeck. Customers will watch it closely.
Holy shit. This part again.
