NEWS: FOOD PRICES 'UP 9.5% IN A YEAR' (Source: The Grocer)  

Food prices have risen on average by almost 10% over the last 12 months, according to a new poll.

A study by the British Retail Consortium found that food prices have climbed by 9.5% in the last year, reports the Daily Mail, with fresh produce seeing an above-trend rise of 10.8%.

?Food prices are rising but retailers are keeping increases well below the extra supply and operating costs they face,? said BRC director general Stephen Robertson said.

The latest study comes after The Grocer revealed that supermarket had notched up price rises of ?3.7bn between 2005 and 2007, although costs had risen by just ?3.5bn over the period.

And data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation & Development last month suggested food price inflation stood at 9.5% in June in the UK ? compared to 7% in Germany and Spain, 6% in the Netherlands and 5.8% in France.
