ABSTRACT
The article focuses on food price inflation in Great Britain. It states that the announced leap in annual inflation has been blamed largely on the soaring cost of food. According to the Office for National Statistics, nearly half the rise in the Consumer Prices Index in July 2008 was down to food price increases. Food inflation, the figures reveal, hit a 28-year high of 13.7 percent. For many farmers, margins from this year's trading will be small at best as they battle with their own inflationary pressures.
