Nordea: Food prices rise by 3.2 percent – this month

Published August 15, 2022 at 3:23 p.m

– Food price inflation is rampant. Prices rose by 3.2 percent compared to the month before, which is a very strong increase, says Torbjörn Isaksson at Nordea to TT.

In one year, coffee has become 39 percent more expensive, cucumber 37 percent more expensive and fresh salmon 35 percent more expensive. Bregott and butter have soon doubled in price.

It is temporary declines in petrol and electricity prices in June that have caused inflation to fall back somewhat, while the underlying so-called core inflation continues to rise.

– Lower prices for electricity and fuel contributed to the inflation rate falling for the first time since January, says Carl Mårtensson, price statistician at Statistics Norway, in a statement.
