Consumer price index in October
Fruit and veg noticeably more expensive
Since a year ago, the average price level for food products and alcohol-free drinks has increased by an average 2.1 percent. Considerable differences were observed, however. The consumers have spent considerably more on vegetables including potatoes and on fruit, with respectively +13.8 percent and +8.3 percent on the annual comparison.
Some items stay far above that. Cauliflower for instance was around two-thirds more expensive than in October 2014. Bell pepper around almost half. On the annual comparison, consumers had to take note of clear price increases for leek, or celery (+ 33 percent), potatoes (+ 31 percent), tomatoes (+ 28 percent) and carrots (+ 23 percent) as well as pears (+ 19 percent) and apples (+ 15 percent).
On the other hand, cucumbers (-1.8 percent compared to last year, -29 percent compared to last month) and oranges (+0.8 percent compared to last year, -7.7 percent compared to last month) were comparatively cheap, as were dairy products and eggs at -6.0 percent compared to last year and +0.7 percent compared to last month, but also sugar at -16.5 percent compared to last year and +0.4 percent compared to previous months.
