Trade experts believe that the increase may be explained by the growth of organized crime.
"We can see from the quantities of goods stolen that these are larger, more well organized attacks," Dick Malmborg from the Swedish Trade Federation told Svenska Dagbladet..
He added that thieves were likely to steal products that they could later sell on to less discerning traders. Meat, coffee, hygiene items, sweets and batteries topped the list of most desirable goods.
