Covid has brought with it consequences that will certainly be recorded in the long term. Among the many increases already announced, such as that of gas and energy, others are added. In particular, the increase in the cost of fuel and inflation will also lead to increases in basic necessities. This is because 85% of goods in Italy are transported by road. So, by Christmas the price of many products in the supermarket could increase but let’s see what they are. Indeed, the gradual increase in prices is already taking place, especially in some cities of Italy. Not surprisingly, in September, the cost of food went up by 1%. To this is added, as indicated, also the “inflation factor”, which is increasing. But, we come to list the products that, due to all the changes described, will cost more.

Which products will cost the most

Apparently, the cost of shopping at the supermarket will also increase, in addition to that of all other goods. In reality, there has been a generalized increase, including in raw materials, which recorded steep rises. Hence, the increase in final products. So, according to a survey by Coldiretti, the products that already cost more are: cereals, with an increase of 27.3%. Then, sugar, with an increase of 53.5% and vegetable fats by 60%. In addition, flour is expected to rise shortly. Assopanificatori and Codaconds intervened on the issue, also announcing an increase in Christmas panettone and pandoro. Finally, again by Christmas, there will be an increase in the price of pasta and coffee. This is what consumers need to know, at least as far as the prices of basic necessities are concerned. Let’s move on now to talk about inflation.

The final cost of the products will also increase due to inflation, which reached 2.5% nationwide. Among the cities most affected by this phenomenon we have, in the first place, Genoa. Here, there was a dizzying increase in prices, amounting to 3.6%. In second place, then, there is Bolzano, where an increase in the price per family of about 891 euros more per year is expected. Finally, in third place, we have Reggio Emilia, where the average price increase per family will be around 855 euros.
