In a glass of strawberry fruit spread of Rossmann’s own brand Enerbio stuck at the same price, only 300 instead of 340 grams. Instead of the hidden price increase Rossmann emphasizes rather the change in the recipe: “40 percent less sugar” is the name of it on the glass. However, the consumer is cheating, because Rossmann refers to a fictitious point of comparison (a strawberry jam with 54 percent sugar). In comparison to the old recipe, the sugar reduction only accounts for nearly 24 per cent, calculate the consumer advocates. The (hidden) price increase justified Rossmann with higher raw material costs. The sugar was replaced only with water and a gelling agent.
