Welcome to our collection of items of news and interest from the last quarter.
Overall RPI has moved minimally during the last quarter – just 0.1% up to 1% since March. Beef and cereals have also moved less than 1% (beef +0.4% and cereals -0.2%) for the same period. The bigger movers were pork – down 2.8% – and fish, the only big increase with 4.2% uplift. With the economy hovering around deflation, interest rate rises are forecast to be just around the corner but we’ll have to wait to see the impact of these increases as and when they happen.
