Dairy products are becoming more and more expensive. This becomes particularly clear when buying butter.
Dortmund – The products in supermarkets and discounters are becoming more and more expensive due to the Ukraine war and inflation. Butter is also affected by the price increases, so that in some cases it already cost over two euros at the beginning of April. But the prices continue to rise.

Aldi, Lidl and Edeka: Butter price breaks historic record
As the food newspaper reports, the price for German branded butter is currently 2.29 per 250 gram packet. This is a price increase of 20 cents compared to the previous month.
Some branded butter products from the Grocery store now even break the 3 euro mark. This should include items from major manufacturers such as Meggle, Weihenstephan and Kerrygold, which are now sold for 3.19 to 3.39 euros – prices that hardly anyone would have expected until recently. Other products are also currently driving customers to despair – for example a strange offer at Aldihow Heidelberg24 reported.
At the southern German butter and cheese exchange in Kempten, however, there is talk of “normal demand” despite the increased prices. The new prices should not have discouraged consumers from buying packaged butter, the commission found. Also Cereal products are likely to become more expensive soonhow bw24.de reported.
Aldi, Lidl, Edeka: Manufacturers do not want to burden consumers any further
Against the background of rising costs for energy and raw materials, a decrease in the price level is not to be expected for the time being. The milk producers are therefore increasing the pressure on retailers to pass on the cost increase to consumers in the form of higher prices.
This is what Heinrich Gropper demanded from the Gropper dairy in the food newspaper “flexible solutions and contracts with shorter terms of three to four months”. Other manufacturers, on the other hand, do not want to burden their customers any further and instead want to save on their own costs, such as the Berchtesgadener Land dairy.
At the same time, further developments are difficult to foresee. The market situation continues to be classified as uncertain. It remains to be seen “how rapidly or less rapidly prices will rise in the future,” the Commission said in April.
