Sorry but we've got to mention it at some point. Might as well be now.
Since the Brexit vote and the drop in the pound, the years of low inflation and steady food prices have come to a halt. Since a lot of the food we consume is imported from Europe or countries that use Dollars the cost of our food has increased by around 7% and pressure on the markets is building.
Most retailers, hotels and restaurants etc seem to be trying to hold prices for as long as possible. Probably to wait and see what happens once article 50 is triggered and what effect that has on the markets.
We are no different. We have not put up our prices and wait with everyone else to see what is around the corner. Sooner or later we will have to review our prices, both to make sure we are able grow as a business, and of course to remain competitive in the market.
Glad I got that off my chest.
