“Showing nearly a 10% increase in two years, it is not surprising to see some consumers turn away, especially those with small budgets,” regrets Rural Families. In its 2021 price observatory, the consumer association calls for the establishment of a “fruit and vegetable check” in 2022, “so as not to divert families with the most modest budgets from these healthy foods”.

Rural families has also calculated that eating in accordance with the recommendations of the national health nutrition plan costs, for a family of four (two adults, a teenager and a child) between 450 euros, varying the products less but respecting the diversity of categories and seasonality, and 1,148 euros for an “organic enthusiast” family. This is the overall monthly budget for feeding a family.

“At this price, everything organic is far from being within reach of all budgets”, comments Rural Families who, to reassure families, reminds that “to stay in good health, the essential thing is to consume enough fruits and vegetables, whether they are organic or not”.

The same basket half the price in Overseas

In general, “Rural Families calls on the public authorities to develop a much more ambitious policy promoting healthy eating by allowing everyone to have access to it”. She believes that “investing in a nutritional program combining prevention and help for the most precarious is the key to curbing the development of too many pathologies linked to the consumption of products that are too fatty, too sweet, too salty in too large quantities”.

The association also notes “the substantial price difference between the same shopping basket acquired in metropolitan France and that purchased in Overseas”, price statements having been made on the same products as those carried out in metropolitan France in Reunion. , in Mayotte, Guadeloupe and Martinique. Verdict: “The same

basket of products costs nearly 50% more than in mainland France”.

The Rural Families survey was carried out over four periods (February, April, June and October 2021) in 148 stores (hypermarkets, supermarkets, predominantly own-brand brands such as hard-discount, organic specialists), by a team of 107 consumption watchdogs” in 37 departments.
