Grocery Prices Compared: Leuven vs Melbourne

Grocery prices in Belgium compared with Australia. Click on the image to enlarge.
Prices for a routine grocery shop of mine, at the local supermarket chains in Leuven (Delhaize and Spar) compared to similar items in a Melbourne supermarket (Coles online catalog). Even though brands compared are different, I've chosen products I consider to be of a similar quality and not under the specials section. To be statistically more accurate, I should have compared prices over a longer period and taken the mean and deviations thereof for each price. Nonetheless, this gives an idea of how prices compare between Australia and Belgium. Bread, chocolate and wine (yippee!) are cheaper here, while poultry, soup and fruits (mandarins) are more expensive.
