Rising food prices are for many the first sign of inflation – a bigger bill at the supermarket is sometimes the most obvious sign family finances are being affected by wider economic issues.
The latest ONS statistics show grocery inflation running at 3.1% in September, the highest level of food price rises since October 2013.
We’d like to find out how your shopping basket is being affected. What price changes have you seen in the groceries you purchase regularly? Perhaps you’ve changed what you buy for reasons of cost, or maybe where you shop? If so, you can tell us about that below. If possible give us precise examples of how prices have changed on specific products – or of shrinkflation, where prices stay the same but portions or pack sizes have got smaller – as this will help us document the issue.
How to contribute
You can get involved by filling in the form below, with as much detail as you can. We’ll use some of your contributions as part of a project to map food price changes around the UK.
