Price increases: Michel-Edouard Leclerc threatens to “castigate multinationals” – BFMTV


Basic necessities are likely to increase sharply in a few days. Up to 23% for pasta. According to Michel-Edouard Leclerc, multinationals are taking advantage of the crisis to speculate.

Shortages, weather, transport costs and even speculation on certain raw materials, all factors that risk increasing the bill for groceries in supermarkets in the days to come. On BFMTV, Michel-Edouard Leclerc denounces the intention of manufacturers to increase the prices of food products by more than 20%.

“Even before the trade negotiations which will be framed this year with the Egalim law, we are told of increases on refined sugar of 10%, on pasta of 23%, on cold meats between 9 and 15%, on vinegar 15%, on olive oil 11% “, reveals on BFMTV Michel-Edouard Leclerc.

For the leader, these increases are not all caused by inflation on commodities or droughts. They believe that industrialists are speculating and profiting from the crisis.

“There is speculation about a lack of availability of wheat and corn. A good trader, if he wants to sell, does not say he will sell more expensive. Those who dare to say that they will be more expensive are the ones who speculated, “says Michel-Edouard Leclerc who name the companies.

“The international companies like Unilever, for example, all the big producers of breakfast cereals. The share of wheat in puffed wheat is not going to bring these products with rates of increase of this type. the FNSEA has already warned not to blame it on the farmers “.

To thwart these methods, the boss of Leclerc centers warns that he will play his role “twice” to curb these increases.

“If we do nothing, pasta will increase by 23%, so ‘hi the large distribution’. Usually everyone shoots at the central purchasing. We have instructed the Leclerc teams not to let the speculative increases. We are going to crush the multinationals “, announces Michel-Edouard Leclerc.

The leader believes that the consumer understands that it is sometimes necessary to pay more “for French agriculture, for better eating, for ecology, for the energy transition”.

“But we are not going to let the increase in consumption be blocked by a few speculators.”
