Consumption: the individual format, 50 times more expensive than the family format

Famille de France wants to educate consumers when they buy products in large quantities, while thinking of saving money.

A survey carried out by the Famille de France association warns consumers about the many price differences depending on the format. According to the association, an item purchased in individual format costs on average 50 times more expensive than in family format. For example, buying coffee sticks is now more expensive than buying a large pot. The gap can even get bigger depending on brands and items.

The mean of the deviations, slightly reduced

At the top of the list of the biggest price differences, the bottle of water, twice as expensive in small format. The average spread has nevertheless decreased slightly. In 2013, consumers paid 53% more for single servings. For Famille de France, the only trick is to determine the right amount to consume according to needs and keep a close eye on prices.
