German Supermarkets Left with Empty Shelves as Inflation Leaves Products Unprofitable

Supermarkets throughout Germany are being left with empty shelves as soaring inflation renders the sale of a wide range of products unprofitable.

Products like Kellogg’s cornflakes to Coca-Cola have vanished from supermarkets throughout Germany after they became unprofitable to sell due to differentials in inflation.

Germany saw the overall inflation rate hit 10 percent in September, with the EU-wide inflation falling just short of 11 percent amid the ongoing energy crisis, fueled by the Ukraine war and the country’s green agenda.

Rmx News reported:

The inflation rate in the European Union rose to 10.9 percent in September, compared to 10.1 percent in August, according to the Eurostat statistical office.

The highest year-over-year rate of inflation recorded was in the Baltic countries of Estonia (24.1 percent), Lithuania (22.5 percent), and Latvia (22 percent). Conversely, the lowest inflation rates for September were recorded in France (6.2 percent), Malta (7.4 percent), and Finland (8.4 percent). Also in Germany, inflation rose by 2.1 percentage points compared to August, reaching 10.9 percent.

The inflation rate is now having a knock-on effect on the supply of food products within Germany as companies compete over the pricing of various items.

Food giants like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Mars have been pushing for higher prices in German supermarkets to preserve profitability.

But retailers have strongly resisted the push for profits, with one accusing major companies of “price gouging” and “usury.”

“Not only Mars, but also many other international brand groups such as Coca-Cola or Procter & Gamble are currently trying to ride the wave of inflation with excessive price demands in order to increase their returns,” a spokesman for the Edaka chain of supermarkets claimed.

The official also claimed a number of major companies have now halted deliveries to the chains, something they alleged is being used to pressure supermarkets.

“They use unilateral delivery stops as a means of exerting pressure on retailers,” the spokesman added.

Meanwhile, supplies are being cut off to other supermarkets throughout the country as retailers refuse to purchase products from well-known suppliers.

“The situation in the industry is critical to catastrophic,” Federal Association of the Food Industry general manager Christoph Minkoff said.

The ongoing feud between supermarkets and producers has now resulted in empty shelves.

The news comes days after Communist China told state-owned energy-importing companies to cease sending natural gas supplies to European nations already facing a catastrophic winter.

As The Daily Fetched reported: the Chinese Communist Party’s National Development and Reform Commission also told the state-owned energy giants CNOOC, PetroChina, and Sinopec to halt shipments of liquified natural gas to foreign buyers in Europe and Asia.

This perfect storm of energy woes in Germany will likely leave many unable to adequately heat their homes due to the ongoing gas shortage.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
