Cereals in a deceptive package
There is less content in the packaging, but the price is the old one: Such food packs are called deceptive packs by consumer protectors.
For Verbraucherzentrale Hamburg, the “deceptive packaging of the month” is not a single product, but several. The Kellogg’s Group has reduced the filling quantities of various cereals across its range and is thus implementing hidden price increases of up to 14 percent, explains the consumer advice centre. Kellogg’s has reduced the content of at least ten cereal brands. Nine packs now contain only 330 grams instead of 375 grams. However, the price for the cereals has not changed. Many XXL packs have also become smaller, often from 700 to 600 grams.
