(ANSA) – MILAN, OCTOBER 20 – The incredible increase in the costs of the entire bread production chain, in addition to the dough, also raises prices for the consumer. So, even in Milan, the classic michetta is destined to cost a few cents more, while in view of Christmas, an increase in panettone is already looming, at least 10%.

The complaint comes directly from the Milanese bakers, for whom, by now, the road has become very narrow. “If we increase the final cost, we risk losing those who have already reduced consumption. If we lower the quality, we play the game with the most demanding customers, who are the ones we all bet on. But if we don’t adjust the prices, we don’t collect the margin that it allows us to live and stay on the market “explains Stefano Fugazza, the third generation of a family of bakers who have been active in the Lambrate district for 110 years.

“Overall, as far as michette are concerned, it is one or two cents per loaf, but we have to multiply this cost tens of thousands of times for each sandwich we bake – he adds -. Luckily, Christmas is coming. In Milan we will save ourselves with panettone. , which however will cost at least 10% more, if the other 10% that would be necessary we will pay for it “.

The alarm, for the category, is already hot: in a few months the flours of average quality have increased up to 80% and a further leap is expected from next year. There is a dizzying rise in the prices of all other raw materials: butter, yeast, oil, jams, chocolate, not to mention the supply times and transport costs. All energy prices have also risen, from gas to electricity which have a heavy impact on the bills for the ovens. (HANDLE).
