Norwegian consumers believe that food is more expensive than it really is, according to a new survey.

The survey, conducted by MMI for the Norwegian farmers' association, found that 55% of those questioned believe that they spend more than 20% of the family budget on food. Of these, 27% said that they spend 20-40% on food, while 11% believe that more than 40% of their income is spent on food.

In reality Norwegian families spend on average 11% of their income on food, according to the Norwegian newspaper Norway Post.
