There have been real price wars in the food industry for months.
Many large manufacturers are demanding sharp price increases from food retailers.
Edeka had already defended itself against price increases in 2022, with success.
Now the retailer is again threatened with gaps on the shelves due to delivery stops.
According to information from the
, the beverage and food manufacturer PepsiCo is no longer supplying the supermarket across the board.
Many products from the range cannot be ordered.
The group is now allegedly demanding a price increase of 30 percent on the entire range from Edeka, as reported by RUHR24.
However, Edeka opposes this demand, which is why PepsiCo immediately stopped deliveries.
So far there is no prospect of a possible compromise.
Well-known Pepsi, 7Up, Lipton, and Lay's branded products are manufactured by PepsiCo.
Retail competition Rewe also expects the price dispute with PepsiCo to escalate and is also preparing for the lack of deliveries.

reports, manufacturer SC Johnson is also threatening supermarkets with price increases.
SC Johnson sells a wide range of cleaning, hygiene, care and insect protection products.
Brands like Glade or Autan fall under this.
