Flour, oil, canned tomatoes, … the list of foods nowadays Edeka and Co. become rare, lengthen more and more. The reason is the war in Ukraine.

to Edeka you might be standing in front of another empty shelf these days. Because at the supermarket, water can be scarce. But the reason is not war, but something entirely different.

Edeka: This is why water is currently scarce

Edeka is currently struggling with mineral water supply bottlenecks, as reported by the “Lebensmittel Zeitung”. That’s why you might find fewer drinking water choices on the shelves than usual right now.


information to Edeka:

  • Edeka was founded in Leipzig in 1907
  • Edeka means Epurchasing cooperative that is to sayhe KColonial Goods Merchant
  • Edeka headquarters are in Hamburg
  • Turnover: 61 billion euros (2020)
  • 402,000 people work at Edeka (in 2020)


However, this does not apply to all brands, only house brand mineral water. Altmühltaler has been the main supplier until now, but that is changing. Edeka changed supplier at short notice. According to the “Lebensmittel Zeitung”, the reason is that Edeka could not agree on future conditions with his partner.

Until then, Edeka’s shelves could remain emptier than usual

In future, Hansa-Heemann, Hochwald-Sprudel and Riha-Wesergold are to act as suppliers. The problem: Because the changeover was so short, companies would struggle to deliver that quickly.
