Butter disappearing from supermarket shelves

6 Replies

How's the great butter crisis going on round your way?Apparently, the suppliers are finding that the supermarket-set prices are too low as compared to alternatives (export).I guess that preventing inflation means preventing higher prices, even if that means certain items must consequently disappear from the notional household shopping basket...What next? Coffee? Toilet paper?

Visited Spain 2 years ago it was €1 for 250 grms. Now it's €1.50. Everything else seems fairly similarly priced so Spain seems to be staving off the inflation pretty well.

I imagine the Eurozone will increase interest rates too, within the next year or so to try and curb it in countries like here and Germany.
