being the cook of the household i do the food shopping and stuff, and today i really noticed the price of food going up for some reason..

a good gauge to start with is coca cola now do a 4 pack which ive never seen before but the price is the same as an old 6 pack..:eek

the old tinned truncheon meat as i call it has gone up nearly 50p in 12 months.:eek

tinned soups an average of 12-15p

I know what you mean DD.

We usually shop at Asda but since weve moved house the mrs gets certain things from Farmfoods after Asda as well, like a 4 pinter of milk for a quid, couple of other things but cant remember.

She has always said Tescos dearer the Asda as well

You want to see the costs of raw materials coming through on food DD.

Butter £3800/ton, last year £2700/ton. In fact all dairy up.

Same across the board on everything, no signs of letting up either. Fruit crops in Eastern Europe up 30% due to poor yields, watch that come through in your jams and yogurts.

That's why the likes of Aldi, Lidl, Iceland are making a bumper profit :hihi
Not so, Aldi will never disclose profits for the division the UK reports into, their market share has taken a battering, Lidl having a tough time too.

The supermarkets make lots of cash, but thats by the sheer volume of sales, their margins are single figures, and that's driven by services, non-foods, etc. There ain't no money in food, believe me, it's a bloodbath out there.
