[12 August/Food Navigator] A study has revealed the most expensive places in Europe to buy groceries. The price of food in Europe increased by 2 percent between June 2018 and June 2019. This is driven by a multitude of factors including increased taxation, tariffs, exchange rates, political events and climate change/the weather. Switzerland is the most expensive country to buy staple groceries, followed by Norway, Iceland, Monaco and then Denmark. Of the 22 European countries analysed, Ukraine was the cheapest place followed by Turkey. It has been noted that the UK is currently in the middle of the pack, although Brexit has the potential to seriously impact food prices.
