WE ARE conducting a very simple Food Prices exercise during 2013. Each month we will be following the prices of four staple value-range foods at the local Co-op Store on Hull Road, Hedon and following the price increases (if any) during the year.
In this continuing year of austerity, shopping carefully has become essential – particularly for those families on a tight budget.
We will be following the prices of milk, butter, bread and carrots.
|Item||Price Feb 2013||Change from last month||Change since Jan 2013|
|Milk – Co-op 1 pint||£0.50p|
|Margarine – I can’t believe it’s not butter (500g)||£1.32||+£0.32||+£0.32|
|Bread – Co-op Wholemeal (800g)||£0.89|
|Carrots – Co-op (500g)||£1.00|
I Can’t Believe that the Butter has gone up by 32p!
