Ba­con short­age

Costa del Sol News - - FRONT PAGE -

PORK prices have hit a four-year high mean­ing the cost of ba­con butties is on the in­crease.

Some larger re­tail­ers may ab­sorb the cost but re­ports have al­ready shown that prices are up be­tween 20-50% in shops. Other pork prod­ucts, such as sausages have un­der­gone a shrink­fla­tion, with Rich­mond sausages go­ing from a 16 pack to 14 – yet it will come as no sur­prise, the price has re­mained the same.

Another ev­ery­day food prod­uct that has seen an un­be­liev­able 91% price hike over the last year is but­ter.

Sup­plies are low as farm­ers pri­ori­tise cheese over but­ter be­cause of bet­ter profit mar­gins which may see a real short­age by the end of the year.
