2022 was marked by a record high IPC rate in Spain (consumer price index). High inflation resulted in the high cost of consumer products, but the cushioning of savings generated during the years of COVID-19 meant that consumption was not particularly affected for the first half of 2022.
Concern amongst Spaniards about the environment and sustainable development is growing, and this is expected to have an increasing impact on demand for recyclable packaging and environmentally-friendly production. Lidl, in its commitment to reduce food waste and to contribute to the circular economy, has started the transformation of bread, pastries, cookies, and vegetable products which are not suitable for human consumption into flour for animal feed.
The former leader in discounters, Dia, is focusing on optimising its outlet network to stabilise its financial situation.

Discounters are chained retail outlets typically with a selling space of between 400 and 2,500 square metres. Stores have a primary focus on selling a limited range of foods, beverages, tobacco and non-groceries at budget prices, regularly via private label. Discounters can be classified as hard discounters and soft discounters. Hard discounters, first introduced by Aldi in Germany, are also known as limited-line discounters. Stores are typically 400-900 square metres and stock fewer than 1,000 product lines, largely in packaged groceries. Product range available is predominantly made up of private-label brands. Soft discounters are usually slightly larger than hard discounters, and are also known as extended-range discounters. Stores typically stock 1,000-4,000 product lines. As well as private-label and budget brands, stores commonly carry leading brands at discounted prices. Example brands include Aldi, Lidl, and Dia.See All of Our Definitions
