In the German supermarket courses, the toilet paper becomes scarce again. Some people are likely to feel reminded of the beginning of the Corona Pandemic. At that time, hamster purchases of consumers were responsible for the shortage. Today, the reasons are much more complex. A main reason are the highly increased raw material prices, as the “food newspaper” reports. These lead to loss of failure in many places. The industry giants Essity and Sofidel have already announced significant price increases. With the retailers, however, they encounter incomprehension. For example, there was no agreement between EDEKA and the ZEWA manufacturer ESSITY. Even at Lidl and net there are first gaps in the shelves.
