Food suppliers signal more price hikes coming to grocery stores
BNN: 'Canadian food suppliers are once again issuing notices to grocery retailers informing them of upcoming price hikes. The letters signal more price increases will hit grocery stores this fall in a year that has already seen nearly double digit increases in food costs.
'In some cases, the higher prices are due to the Canadian Dairy Commission's approval of a second milk price increase this year, that which will see farm gate milk prices go up about two cents per litre, or 2.5 per cent, on Sept. 1. Yet dairy processing companies appear to also be tacking on their own increases, the so-called piggybacking of price hikes some industry observers warned would happen.'
