Price comparison Switzerland vs France – the shopping basket price challenge

Our snapshot comparison of a 14-item list of basic groceries has revealed a +€27.74 (CHF30.38) difference between Switzerland (COOP supermarket in Lausanne) and France (Carrefour supermarket in Ferney Voltaire, near Geneva). The Swiss basket of items was +91% more expensive. Our mini poll took place at the end of June.

You can read more about these whopping consumer price differences and the issue of cross-border shopping in an article, "What to do about Switzerland’s eye-watering prices?", to be published on Tuesday.
