DK: ‘Bread, butter, lard cost twice as much’
Basic foodstuffs such as bread, butter and lard today cost twice as much as a year ago, a politician of the opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) said on Monday.
While the price of these products have “increased brutally”, several other basic items such as flour and eggs “are often simply missing from shelves”, Zoltan Varga told an online press conference.
He said that because of Hungary’s record high VAT in Europe, the government “is even making gains” on inflation.
Varga said the only solution to stop inflation would be to regain access to European Union funds and restore trust in the Hungarian economy.
