Inflation: In India, the utensils bar 20 grams lighter and in America 60 tissue paper in 65 packets, companies are adopting tactics to mislead customers

According to Hitendra Chaturvedi, a supply chain management professor at Arizona State University, if you subtract the cost from the market value of the product of many companies, you will find that profits increase rapidly. Take the example of PepsiCo, its business profit was 11 percent in 2021, but it has increased to 128 percent in the first quarter.

In India, the Vim bar for washing dishes has been reduced from 155 to 135 grams. In America, only 60 tissue papers are available in 65 packets of Kleenex company. In the UK, Nestle left a tin of 90 grams of 100 grams of Nescafe Azera Americano Coffee. Companies from Asia to Europe and America are doing the same tricks. Reason? In the midst of rising inflation, reduce your costs, increase profits and most importantly, keep your customers deceived.

Experts are telling that in this new trend, from chips and curd to toilet paper are being seen in the markets all over the world. By doing this, companies are avoiding increasing the price of the product even when the cost increases. Finance analyst company S&P Global claims that global consumer price growth in May stood at 7 per cent, the same trend will continue till September.

According to consumer rights expert Egger Dworski, companies have been following the trend of reducing the weight of the products for 10 years without changing the price. He says that this trend has picked up since the end of last year. In India, Dabur India’s corporate spokesperson Beas Anand says consumers in rural areas are very price sensitive, companies find it easier to increase prices in cities.

Next: Will the packets remain small?
According to Dwarsky, it is very rare for companies to shorten the packets of a product and then increase them. They take such steps to deal with inflation, but do not want to change it later after seeing competition and profits.
