It was discussed, among other things

  • on the effect of extending the food price ceiling;
  • about the dangers of “repainting” the extra profit tax;
  • about the inefficient Hungarian food industry;
  • about customers changing shops for one HUF;
  • about planned investments and store openings;
  • about why comparing ourselves to the Germans is a vain dream;
  • and what you look for when you look at a competitor.

“For ethical reasons, we have always tried to give preference to domestic products, even if they are a little more expensive. But when the food price cap causes us more damage than the extra profit tax on a weekly basis, these considerations are pushed into the background. On the food price cap alone, around 250-300 per week we lose a million forints, more than the special tax”

– says Heiszler.
