It is the consumer, however, who needs the greatest help. Government and businesses must strive to support the parents who are trying to feed their families for less despite rising food prices. This is entirely possible. We must put a stop to grocery promotions which either result in waste or unnecessarily high consumption.
These promotions: they\’re, umm, price cuts, right?
So, we\’ve got to make food more affordable by banning price cuts.
Yup, that\’ll do it.
The following question will be our focus: how can we ensure good food is affordable and valued in a world where global competition and climate change are expected to result in 30 per cent price increases over the next 15 years?
So food is expected to increase in price rather less than trend growth in incomes then? So food will be becoming, as a portion of incomes, ever cheaper?
Just what actually is the problem here?
