The Low-Price “Household Basket” Goes Into Operation as of Wednesday

ATHENS – The “household basket” of lower-priced staple goods is expected to be launched on Wednesday, following a ministerial decision signed by Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis.

The aim of the measure is to ensure low prices for a class of essential consumer goods, determined by the ministry, while each supermarket chain is free to choose which specific product codes are to be included in the basket and their prices.

The basket is required to include various foodstuffs such as flour, pasta, meat, fish, dairy products, beverages, cleaning products, hand sanitizers, personal hygiene products, disposable nappies, baby formula and pet food.

The prices of the products that make up each supermarket’s “household basket” were posted on Wednesday on https://e-katanalotis.gov.gr/householdBasket.

Consumers will have the opportunity to search the prices and products per supermarket.

The prices at 13 supermarket chains that participate in the ‘basket’ have been posted on the Development and Investment Ministry website, while the products included in the basket will bear a special sign on the shelf and will be promoted in the supermarkets’ ads.

The prices announced will remain the same until next week, as the prices and the content of the basket will change every Wednesday.
