The Association of German Social Restoration Centers said that by the end of the month, many German families simply will not have the money to buy groceries.
German food organizations warn of the risk of food shortages in the country. Producers appealed to the country’s authorities with the demand to address this problem immediately, since the current crisis in Ukraine and sanctions against Russia lead to a further increase in raw materials.
The head of the Federal Association of the German Food Industry, Christian von Betticher, called on the Minister of Agriculture, Cem Ozdemir, to delve into the situation and engage in crisis management.
According to von Betticher, in the very near future it will no longer be about the cost of finished products, but about whether manufacturers can afford to buy ingredients for it.
Due to unprecedented growth in energy costs, bakery production costs have already skyrocketed by almost a third. Next in line is another increase in the price of meat and milk.
Earlier, the German Association of Social Catering Centers said that by the end of the month, many German families would simply not have money to buy groceries. It is clear that in this case it was the least protected segments of the population, but in the future the situation will worsen.
