Fórián Zoltán, Senior Agricultural Expert of the Erste Agricultural Competence Center told Világgazgaság about why vegetables have become more expensive this year – origo wrote.

The increase in demand for higher-quality products is causing higher vegetable prices than last year, not the crop shortages – Világgazdaság wrote on Friday.
According to the expert, this higher price is relative because producers’ costs are rising: they have to comply with the rules, the needs of purchasers, they have to develop, invest, and later robotize. (origo)
