VIDEO. "They don't help enough": Bruno Le Maire asks for support from electricity suppliers for bakers


The approximately 33,000 bakers in France are entitled to three grants to counter the effects of the energy crisis, the minis announced on Tuesday.

Hit hard by inflation, the 33,000 bakers in France are likely to receive three aids, announced Tuesday the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire.

These three aids are "a financial aid window, a 20% discount with the shock absorber, all cumulatively up to a 40% discount on their bill and a deferral of payment of social charges and tax charges" , he specified.

“Today, suppliers do not help bakers and SMEs enough.

I ask them to do more, better, and immediately, ”insisted the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire after a meeting in Bercy with representatives of the bakery sector.

"I am sorry to see that the commitments that were made" in a charter signed in October by the energy companies "are not respected", lamented the minister, threatening to name the offending companies if they did not undertake to correct their behavior from the meeting scheduled for the afternoon.

Bakers will also be able to terminate their electricity supply contract free of charge in the event of a “prohibitive” price increase and insofar as it “threatens the survival of the company”, the Minister of the Economy announced on Tuesday.

This “exceptional” measure, which exclusively targets bakers, will be applied “on a case-by-case basis” by energy companies, however, warned the number 2 of the government, after a meeting at the ministry with electricity suppliers.

It is primarily aimed at craftsmen who suffer the “double penalty” of the rise in the price of energy and raw materials.
