According to the data released by the Information Resources Company (IRI), the French turned to buy frozen food and canned food that can be preserved for a long time due to famine and concerns that stocks would run out.
Among the stocked products, there are mostly smoked fish, meat, ground beef, bread and frozen vegetables as well as ice cream.
In the country, sales of foie gras rose 50 percent, smoked fish sales increased 28 percent, and champagne sales increased 20 percent.
