Hungary’s vegetables prices skyrocket with extreme cold
The main reason for the price hike is the extreme weather, Hungarian online daily index.hu reported.
In the southern parts of Europe, the majority of crops froze and only half the amount of vegetables arrived in Hungary as usual.
The case is further worsened by the fact that 90%-95% of vegetables in Hungary are imported, index.hu adds.
Additionally to high prices, the vegetable market currently carries products with limited stock. It is expected that the unusually high prices will persist until Easter. ■
