Italians lowering food standards as recession bites


Rome, January 4 - More and more Italians are
shopping at discount food stores, lowering traditionally high
quality standards as a recession drags on, a report said Friday.
According to national farmers' group CIA, 34% of Italian
families say they shop at low-cost grocery stores, while 28% say
they do so exclusively.
CIA said that six out of 10 families had to adjust their
food-consumption habits in 2012, and 50% significantly cut down
on grocery expenses.
The group was responding to data Friday from statistics
agency Istat, which showed Italy's annual inflation rate for
2012 was 3.0%, the highest since 2008, on the basis of
preliminary estimates.
The so-called 'trolley' of most frequently bought goods
like groceries and petrol also hit a post-2008 high, of 4.3%,
Istat said.
