Do higher food prices mean good times?

Jun 30, 2020 | 12:15 1 Grocers are set to raise prices due to higher costs to stock their shelves at their stores....

Must be nice...

When do farmers see higher prices or at least recoup their costs? Reply With Quote

    Hard times for the people producing the things that these good times rolling outfits are selling.
    Hard times also for the people buying.
    What a great set up.
    Maybe if they didn’t listen to the hursheys, mnp, farm groups they might have a clue that this doesn’t work. Reply With Quote

    Or a PROFIT like 99% of business needs to keep going. Only when the commodities we produce/raise are one bushel/animal short of demand. But apparently with GLOBAL WARMING farmers will produce way MORE and it don't look good fellows...been same for my 53 years at this, good luck younger guys!
    I will never see it, IMO

    Galen weston price fixed bread for a decade before admitting it...

    And he blamed it on higher wheat prices.

    Funny how farmers never participated in that ....

    It takes pennies on an item to make up the extra costs....for grocers.....

    They are just using collusion to gouge consumers Reply With Quote
