The share of Hungarian foodstuffs at major retail chain operators edged up to 71.3% last year from 70.5% in 2020, Gyula Kasza, a head of department at food safety authority NÉBIH said at an event of the Hungarian Association of Meat Industry Companies, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The share of Hungarian foodstuffs was highest at retail chains with domestic ownership, at 82.2% at Coop, followed by 78.7% at CBA, Kasza said.
Kasza noted that the share of Hungarian goods is typically higher in product groups with lower added value.
The authority gathered data for its report between September and November last year, at 60 stores belonging to the 10 largest retail chains. NÉBIH examined the most basic foodstuffs, including meat products, milk, dairy products, eggs, honey, vegetables, fruits, and canned goods. Products were selected in such a way as to best represent the output of the Hungarian food industry.
