Price increase for cutlery 2022. Why has the cutlery become more expensive?
You have probably heard that prices are rising everywhere. We are also confronted with higher prices.
Steel has become considerably more expensive. There is also scarcity; there is more demand than supply.
Inflation this year will be quite high. Prices are expected to rise between 3.5% and 4% on average. The first price increases are already noticeable.
Energy prices (fuel, gas and electricity) are also rising considerably. A lot of energy is needed to produce the cutlery.
Partly for this reason, EME had to increase the purchase price of the cutlery by no less than 20%. Of course we do not want to implement a price increase of 20% and that is why we have found other ways to reduce our costs. As a result, we have been able to reduce the price increases on our specifications between 3 and 10%.
