For more than a year, inflation has hit products sold in supermarkets hard. The JDD has asked the main retail brands to communicate their price increases over the past twelve months. Verdict, if the increase is global, some products have soared much more than others. At the head of the most inflationary products, we find the least expensive: thus, the eight first-price brands have experienced an increase of around 41% in one year, against 25.25% for private labels and 24.13 % for national brands of large groups.
If we look at the most popular products, Nestlé shows a record increase of 23% in the price of Friskies dog food. Herta Le Bon ham recorded an increase of 21.8%, while Danone natural yoghurts experienced an increase of 18%. The price of the Lactalis Group President camembert rose by 13.5%.
Barilla spaghetti, meanwhile, surged 13.5%, while six-pack Heineken lagers rose 12.4%. For Coca-Cola without sugar, the increase is only 5.8%.
The prices of meat, butter, oil and fresh cream are soaring overall, with a general increase of 22 to 40% over twelve months. Conversely, among the prices that have been the least affected by inflation are prepared meals or fresh industrial breads.
