The government has previously set the highest prices for granulated sugar, wheat flour, sunflower cooking oil, pork thighs, chicken breast, chicken cattle and 2.8 per cent UHT cow’s milk at mid-October last year. The food price stop has been extended for two months in the days until July 1, 2022.
Consumer protection experts have recently carried out on-site inspections in about 2,000 shops, revealing omissions in 203 cases. 137 stores employed higher prices than the authority, and in more than half of the cases, cooking oil was offered at a higher price than required. To date, the authority has imposed fines totaling more than HUF 32 million on 167 defaulters. The largest item, HUF 1.8 million, was charged twice to the units of Fejér County by international store chains. The heavily sanctioned shops did not keep the required quantities of any of the products concerned in stock.
