Aldi, Lidl and Co .: bottlenecks in deliveries and price increases now threaten these products as well

Expensive shock at the supermarket:

In the near future, customers of Aldi, Lidl and Co. will have to expect further delivery bottlenecks. Now canned tomatoes are also affected. Here we have summarized what you need to know now.

There may soon be bottlenecks in the supply of canned tomatoes in Germany. This should probably also be associated with price increases. As the “Lebensmittel Zeitung” reports, the reasons are different.

Most of the tomatoes come from Italy. However, many farmers now rely on other products. Fodder cereals and corn are currently very popular due to the increased profit opportunities. According to Andreas Reimer, managing director of the Hengstenberg canning company, the acreage for tomatoes is decreasing by around 10%.

Furthermore, the demand is still very high. Even the good harvest of 2021 could not guarantee that the warehouses were full.

The price of tomato raw material is currently 18% higher than last year’s level. In addition, there are soaring energy prices, which have a major impact on the cooking of canned foods, as well as bottlenecks in packaging delivery. Prices are likely to rise further.
