The war in Ukraine has affected the availability of numerous products of rewe, Edeka, Kaufland and other food markets.

Rewe, Edeka, Kaufland and Co: Will this product be scrapped?

Now animal products are also becoming scarce! In the course of the Ukraine war, organic poultry farmers are threatened with the loss of adequate feed, and that already in the coming months.

“Organic ranchers are the first affected by the effects of the war. We will have a real supply crisis for organic food, especially protein,” said the president of the Central Association of the German Poultry Industry, Friedrich-Otto Ripke, of the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung.” With a few exceptions, inventories only lasted until June or July.

Keepers could feed them conventional feed, but that meant losing their organic status. Bitter news for organic farmers. Ripke therefore asked the federal government to temporarily suspend the obligation to supply organic food. Without exception, organic egg production is “on the verge of a hard break.”


this is the shopkeeper Edeka:

  • Edeka was founded in Leipzig in 1907
  • Edeka is the grocery cooperative
  • Edeka’s headquarters are in Hamburg
  • Turnover: 61 billion euros (2020)
  • 402,000 people work at Edeka (as of 2020)


Rewe, Edeka, Kaufland and Co: No Ukrainian Food

Until the outbreak of the war, Ukraine was one of the leading producers of organic feed and individual feed components. If Ukraine ceases to be a supplier of feed, some farms in this country would be affected: According to the association, around twelve percent of laying hens in Germany would be kept on organic farms.
