Díaz asks for a basket of food with frozen prices that vary each week and last beyond Christmas

Must include protein and fresh and food for celiacs


The Second Vice President of the Government and Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz, assured this Thursday that the shopping basket of basic products with "frozen" or "limited" prices that she is demanding from large retailers must vary every week, include protein and fresh (fish, meat, fruit, eggs and vegetables), products for celiacs and be available to families at least until after Christmas.

Speaking to the press after meeting with the executive director of Carrefour Spain, Alexandre de Palmas, the vice president did not go into assessing the content of the basket announced by Carrefour (30 basic products at 30 euros) and limited herself to pointing out the characteristics that you should have a shopping basket with basic products "at limited prices or frozen".

In addition to being affordable and of quality and being available at least until after Christmas, Díaz has stated that this basic shopping basket must "rotate" weekly so that the diet is "varied and healthy" and that a specific basket should also be articulated for celiacs.

The vice president has insisted that this demand is directed at the large distributors so that they launch this basket "at the expense of their business margins" and not of the producers. She has also indicated that it is not a proposal that is focused on small businesses, because "it does not have the capacity" to assume the cost.

Asked about the division of opinions within the Government regarding this issue and whether this matter is the responsibility of another ministerial portfolio, Díaz has been very clear: "The pockets of the citizens are the responsibility of the entire Government."

The meeting was also attended by the Minister for Consumer Affairs, Alberto Garzón, who highlighted the importance of a varied and healthy basket of basic products at affordable prices for consumers.
