Federdistribuzione concerned about suffering consumption: economic uncertainty and inflation impact the budgets of Italian families, who are changing their purchasing habits. According to a recent survey by Ipsos, 56 percent of Italians perceive that the rising cost of living is heavily impacting their household accounts. In particular, in the food sector there is a volume decrease in purchases of about -5% compared to the previous year. Federdistribuzione President Carlo Alberto Buttarelli stressed the need to reprioritize the support of domestic demand to avert recessionary scenarios, putting in place all the necessary actions and policies to recover the purchasing power of families and defend businesses from any further leaps in costs related to energy and raw materials.
