Ukraine and Russia produce 31 percent of the global wheat market. Russia's invasion of Ukraine will therefore have an impact on all foods, including foods with wheat.

The war means that the prices of selected goods are likely to rise. It is primarily about bread and grain products.

It is too early to say how much prices will rise and when prices will fall again to the normal level we have been used to. It is important to emphasize that there will be no shortage of food in the supermarkets in Denmark, as we have strong supply chains and produce a lot ourselves.

You can read more about the importance of food prices on this page is the Danish authorities' website regarding the current crisis.
