There are probably few wallets that do not feel the rising food prices right now. A survey conducted by the Swedish National Food Agency shows that the increased food prices lead to many people choosing not to buy vegetables. Primarily, it is about low-income people, such as students.
"The fact that so many people with lower incomes say that they buy less fruit and vegetables is worrying from a public health perspective," says Åsa Brugård Konde, nutritionist at the National Food Agency in a statement.
"More expensive than meat"

"Peppers are more expensive than meat right now," says Klara Hallsenius, a student at Linköping University.
