Shoppers remain confident despite #Brexit food price rise

The survey showed 62 per cent of shoppers were anticipating food to become more expensive over the next 12 months, but consumer confidence was not dented.

 

A rising proportion of consumers believed they would actually be better off in the near future – defying gloomy post-Brexit predictions from a number of analysts.

“If the Government responded to the increase in inflation by raising interest rates, this would also decrease shoppers’ disposable income via increased mortgage/loan/credit card repayments”, she added.
