Food prices in Norway will probably increase by between 4 and 5% this year.

The Technical Calculation Committee (TBU) estimates that food prices, as measured in the consumer price index, will rise by between 4 and 5% in 2022.

Consumer economist Cecilie Tvetenstrand in Storebrand told TV 2 that the price increase is greater than it has been before.

“An average family with two adults and two children must expect to spend 7,000 kroner more on food this year, compared to today, if the price increases by 5%,” Tvetenstrand said.
