I am writing today - Sunday May 1 - on threat of rising food prices.
Asda boss Stuart Rose has warned prices in shops are set to rise more - and keep high for some time. He said: “There is going to be a new level for raw materials and that is not going to go down. We need to change our behaviour - what we need what we don’t need… and the government can do more.”
For example, the war in Ukraine means chickens are set to become as expensive as beef because of the spiralling cost of chicken feed. There are also problems with supply lines. I'm looking for 300 words on this issue which will appear as a standalone bylined short comment piece running beside my news story. To be delivered today - Sunday - by 4.30pm.
