LE MONDE // Article by Benoît Hopquin

"Steak under high protection : an inflation of anti-theft devices in shops".

"Developed in the 1990s and booming over the last twenty years, these objects are ready to ring the bell at electronic gates and are available in an infinite variety of forms. [...] The decline in purchasing power and the proliferation of automatic checkouts, which are less closely monitored than human checkouts, are prompting retailers to 'tag' more and more basic products.

[...] The number of shoplifting complaints rose by 14% in 2022, according to figures from the French Ministry of the Interior.

[...] With the current economic climate and the proliferation of automatic checkouts, the temptation to forget something at the bottom of your shopping bag is all the greater. Especially when you're talking about vanilla pods or tins of crab costing 25 euros."

"Shoplifting has risen by 14% since last year in supermarkets"

In France, this phenomenon has grown considerably. With inflation, shoplifting rose by 14% last year. This summer, beach shops are obviously affected, but not only. On the shelves of supermarkets, food products have become targets : anything goes to protect them. Manufacturers of anti-theft devices have seen their orders soar.

At this company in Châteauroux, sales have almost doubled in the space of a year. It manufactures anti-theft devices for all kinds of products : cans, tins and even vacuum-packed ham.

"The protectors have to be easy for employees to fit, and easy to unlock once they've reached the checkout", says Jacky Thoonsen, CEO of the company of the same name.
