Norwegians think food bust their budget
Numbers from Statistics Norway indicate that Norwegians in average use 11 percent of their income on food, reported the Norwegian news bureau (NTB). However, half of the people polled in the survey conducted by MMI on behalf of Norsk Landbrukssamvirke, they think they use more than 20 percent of their income on food, reported the Norwegian paper Dagsavisen.
Erling Røed Larsen, researcher at Statistics Norway, said he thinks people are influenced by the media focus on food and food prices. In addition, he stressed that since food is purchased so often it makes people think that they spend a lot of money on groceries.
A total of 37 percent of the surveyed said that they disagree with the statement that Norwegian food is inexpensive compared to their income, while 41 percent said they think the good is inexpensive.
