Top 5 Supermarket Retail Chains In Slovenia

Slovenia ended 2023 with a 4.2% inflation rate, according to data from the Slovenian Statistics Office.

The largest impact on the annual inflation rate came from higher prices of food and non-alcoholic beverages. In one year, goods prices went up by 3.3%. On a month-on-month basis, consumer prices went down by 0.5% in December 2023.

Compared to the previous yer, non-durable goods prices rose by 4.5% and semi-durable goods prices by 2.1%, while durable goods prices went down by 0.3%.

The annual growth of consumer prices was 3.8%, but in the case of unchanged excise duties, it would have been lower (2.5%).

Here's an overview of the top ten supermarket retail chains in Slovenia, according to their most recently-available full-year turnover. All data is supplied by Retail-Index (www.retail-index.com).
