"Gross earnings by farms have fallen sharply this year compared to 2008 levels...in addition, revenues from grain sales fell by 110 million euros. A large harvest flooded the market, driving down prices for grains."
I understand that grain and in general any food related price went sharply down in the past year.
On top of that Oil price plummeted and is about half of the peak it reach in 2008. Moreover, transportation cost (for food stuff imports) have severely decline.
In addition, Uemployment has risen which mean the purchasing power as a whole as gone down on the consumer side.
So how on earth food price have not budge in Finland? Why is there not any competition coming from the two biggest supermarket? and what is the competition authority doing?
