The family business, which has 13 branches in Stuttgart, is appealing to politicians for help. Managing Director Stefanie Sailer-Puritscher is unsure how to navigate the coming months.
Stefanie Sailer-Puritscher, managing director of the Sailer bakery, chose drastic words in her letter to the state parliamentarians of the Stuttgart constituency. “We no longer know how we will survive the months to come. Energy costs are eating away at us. Please help us! “, she wrote on September 6. She also points out that politicians apparently haven’t yet realized that baking is one of the energy-intensive industries. “The prices of raw materials and electricity, natural gas and fuel oil are rising to a point never seen before,” says Sailer-Puritscher. This not only affects your business, but also your suppliers and customers. “And that’s why we can hardly raise our prices.”
