Vox Pop: Rising food prices concern

Prices for basics are creeping up

Rising food prices is a growing concern across Britain, causing many to cut down on the weekly spend.

An unusually wet summer in Britain and dry summer in America has impacted on the quantity and quality of crops, and has as a result been nudging food prices up.

Neil Crombie, team manager at The Co-operative Food on Crwys Road said, “Prices of bread and milk are slowly creeping up, but customers aren’t complaining. Our milk is slightly more expensive than other supermarkets, but customers are happier to come here, because they know we give dairy farmers a better price.”

alt.cardiff asked residents of Wales’ capital city how they were being affected.

Some expressed concerns that wages were not increasing in line with rising food prices, while others were considering becoming self-sufficient.
