Both Lidl and Spar have announced significant price changes. Starting this week, bakery products, rice, flour, dry pasta, muesli, oatmeal and baking powder are all cheaper at Spar. Meanwhile, at Lidl, some items can be purchased with up to a 29 percent discount, but on average the affected products cost around 10 percent less.
Food inflation is the highest in Hungary
According to the latest February data by KSH, food inflation still remains at 43.3 percent. Therefore, customers are getting more price-conscious when it comes to grocery shopping. In response to this, stores decided to use effective means to enable small and large purchases that take less of a toll on the family budgets.
Food price reduction at SPAR Hungary
In order to be able to plan purchases at the most favourable price, Spar reduces the prices of an increasing number of products weekly within the framework of the price fall promotion. The list of almost 400 products is expanded every Monday, and the new consumer price of the products and the deadline of the promotion are also highlighted in the online flyer. Index has collected the latest discounted products:
- baked goods (bread, pastries) by 6–16 percent
- rice, semolina, wheat flour by between 5 and 7 percent
- dry pasta by 5–10 percent
- muesli and oatmeal between 5 and 9 percent
- baking powder and vanillin sugar by 7 percent
On average, products cost 10 percent less by Lidl
In response to consumer demands and market changes, Lidl began to continuously reduce prices from the beginning of the year, writes pénzcentrum.hu. The discount rate can reach up to 29 percent, but in many cases, the prices dropped by more than 20 percent. For example, for 1 kg of Pilos Trappist cheese, instead of the previous HUF 3,890 (EUR 10,11), you have to pay HUF 2,990 (EUR 7,77). Also noteworthy are the Chicken Sticks, which have become cheaper by 20 percent, so they now cost only HUF 949 (EUR 2,47) per kilogram. In addition, the 1-kilogram half-brown bread is currently available for HUF 689 (EUR 1,79).
The department store chain also tries to support its customers in many other ways so that they can do their shopping at the most favorable price possible. In addition to the promotions that change every week, Lidl’s digital loyalty program, Lidl Plus, offers consumers coupons entitling them to 10-12 discounts, scratch cards and other additional discounts.

Food here is more expensive than Germany and U. K wtf?!?!?!
Ramsey – concur.
Like finding a “Needle in a Haystack.”
INFLATION is far from reaching its ZENITH in Hungary.
The gouging, greed, selfishness and exploitation by the LARGE Supermarket Chains continues.
Bad enough living with a Government that is FULL of PROPAGANDA, but to have it, coming out of Supermarket and “other” food distributors and industry – ANNOYING.
What about over the counter PHARMACEUTICALS ?
Get a journalist/reporter from DNH – to get” down and dirty” – investigate this on-going HUMONGOUS – price gouging exploitation of Hungarian citizens.
