What’s Going On With Food Pricing?

The news about the rising cost to feed our families may not be very positive, but there are ways to shop smart. There are several reasons why food prices won’t be coming down any time soon: constraints on raw materials, increased freight costs, significant labor shortages, crop issues, and higher energy costs to name a few.  Consumer price index data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed overall inflation rates rose to 6.8% over the previous year, marking the fastest annual increase in the inflation rate since June 1982.  

All is not lost! It’s just time to be an informed consumer. Here are a few ways Alison’s Pantry can help you be a savvy shopper and manage your grocery budget…
