New month, new prices! Across the board, supermarkets and discounters in Germany raised their prices in November. FOCUS online says which products are affected and where further price adjustments are imminent.

Starting today, anyone who wants to buy breadcrumbs from Aldi Süd, Lidl, Rewe or Penny must take a deep breath. Almost all no-name products from Aldi, Lidl, Rewe, Norma, Netto Marken-Discount, Edeka and Hit cost over EUR 1.65 for the first time. At Aldi, for example, a kilo of breadcrumbs was available for 1.69 euros.

Compared to October, this is a price adjustment of a whopping 70 percent. The breadcrumbs cost 99 cents at the end of the month. Possible reason for the sharp price adjustment? Flour and other ingredients for making bread have become significantly more expensive.

Consumers have to be strong when it comes to fries from the deep-freeze counter. As the price radar from FOCUS online determines, the cheapest pack at Aldi, Lidl, Rewe and Edeka costs two euros for the first time. In October, the no-name products cost only 1.29 euros per kilo and in a bag. Here, too, the price adjustment is almost 70 percent.

There was also a substantial adjustment to branded products. McCain’s fries cost a whopping 2.79 euros in a Rewe branch in Munich on Wednesday. The 1.5-kilo bag is even 3.99 euros. Compared to spring, the price rose by 60 cents each.

At the beginning of the month, there were also price adjustments for meat, cheese, hair shampoo, yoghurt, cat food and garbage bags. Here, too, inflation was in the high double-digit cent range.

Pork ham schnitzel now costs 6.19 euros at Rewe and Edeka (keeping class 1) in the best case. In October, consumers paid 5.39 euros for it.

There are several reasons. The food industry complains of higher manufacturing costs, fueled by increased electricity and energy costs. In addition, the prices for material, transport and storage have increased, which has an overall effect on the sales price.

A quick relaxation is not in sight for the time being. As the Ifo Institute reports, people must continue to adjust to significantly higher prices when buying groceries. Around 97 percent of the grocers surveyed wanted to charge more.

“The wave of inflation has not yet broken,” said Ifo economic chief Timo Wollmershäuser. “In particular, the high energy costs have not yet been fully passed on to consumers.”

Look actively in brochures and look for discount offers. Only buy branded products when they are on sale.

Go private label and get the biggest savings. For this you buy products that can be found on the lower shelves. If you only buy food and drinks that are at eye level on the shelf, you have to expect higher prices.

Good to know: Despite the current wave of prices, there are many ways to save.
