  • Wonder if Premier think they might have a problem. Up goes the price of a loaf less is eaten. Then Premier has to make redundancies.The redundancies cost more than the money they gained by putting up the price.Perhaps someone will start importing bread from China.

  • I knew there was a good reason I decided to go back on the Atkins diet 🙂 Seriously though – do you think anyone will notice that bread has gone up? My mother in law knows the exact price of everything that she buys in the supermarket and frequently comments about the price of milk. But I couldn’t tell you and I suspect I’m not alone, so I don’t believe people will eat less, because they wont realise how much it was costing them in the first place.

    The good thing about this though, is at least it’s in the basket goods. But then again so are credit card fees and mortgage fees, and they’ve gone up enormously this year and yet it doesn’t seem to have a jot of difference.

  • The price of bread has risen big time over the last year. We’re not talking just a few pence per loaf here. A year ago you could buy a cheap white loaf for 19p and a better quality one for around 40p. Now you don’t get much change from a pound for a decent quality loaf. I think most housewives (at least in Scotland) realise that bread has gone up. Prices are a common topic among women who are on a tight budget. I’ve been buying less bread recently because of the price rise. Wheat and other flours have also increased in price so even baking at home is more expensive. (a hint: I’ve found you can actually make half-decent bread rolls by using ordinary cheap flour instead of strong flour) Bread isn’t the only foodstuff that has increased in price. Has anyone else noticed that some supermarkets are packaging fruit (plums, peaches, nectarines) in smaller tubs and selling them at the same price as last year’s larger tubs?

  • No offence fellow bloggers but if you feel the need to monitor the price of bread, I would personally suggest that you throw in the towel. Either that or earn a better crust!
