Food inflation stable at 3.5% in March

first_imgThe British Retail Consortium (BRC) has said it expects food inflation to remain steady in the medium-term.It comes as the rate of inflation remained unchanged in March, at 3.5%, while overall shop price inflation rose to 1.4% during the month, in comparison to 1.1% in February.Helen Dickinson, director general of the BRC, said: “Food inflation is unchanged since February, but this is primarily due to a decrease in prices for tinned and packet goods balancing out a fresh food rise. There are still price pressures, which will continue to work through, but I would expect food inflation to remain fairly steady in the medium term. “Total inflation is at its highest rate since December, again reflecting that many retailers went into the New Year with less stock to clear, so discounting is less extensive compared with 2012.”Mike Watkins, head of retailer and business insight, Nielsen said: “With cold weather in March holding back spending across many channels, price reductions have been needed to stimulate demand for food and there was also an increase in price competition at the supermarkets due to Easter promotions, keeping overall food inflation stable.“As discretionary spend for the next few months is expected to remain flat at best, what upward pressure there is on prices is not coming from the consumer at the moment.”Last October, food inflation rose to 4%, a 0.9% rise on the previous month when the rate was at a two-year low. The BRC said it had been affected by poor harvests, rising production costs and commodity price increases.last_img read more

Softball: Big Ten Tournament spot on the line for Badgers this weekend

first_imgAfter a 4-1 week on the road, University of Wisconsin softball is coming back to Goodman Diamond this weekend to take on the University of Illinois. The series will be the first in an eight-game homestretch to end the Badgers’ season before the Big Ten tournament in May.The Badgers (23-17-1, 8-5-1 Big Ten) are trying to win key games to ensure a spot in the tournament. That makes these three games against Illinois (26-18, 5-9 Big Ten) crucial for Wisconsin, and any mistakes could have big consequences later on.Last time outThe Badgers are moving up after last week, which featured a win against rivals University of Minnesota Twin Cities and University of Iowa. With four wins on the weekend, the Badgers moved up six spots in the NCAA ranking, going from No. 73 to No. 67.There is no doubt that if the Badgers keep having weeks like this, they will find themselves ranked even higher nationally.Softball: Yvette Healy talks team’s impressive week on road, importance of seniorsThe University of Wisconsin women’s softball team is looking ahead to their last games of the season after having beat Read…Keys to SuccessAs the season comes to a close, it is key that the Badgers keep focusing on the game at hand. It is crucial that they continue to perform with the same high-caliber play they have been playing with in the last few weeks.As long as Wisconsin keeps its momentum going, and keeps errors down, they should find themselves victorious against a team like Illinois. All the Badgers need is a few more conference wins to secure their spot in the Big Ten tournament.Player to Watch: Annie FlemingIllinois’ number one batter for the season is Fleming, who is currently leading her team with a .352 batting average. Fleming, who is a designated player for Illinois, is going to be a challenge for Taylor-Paige Stewart and the Badger defense to keep points off the board.If the Badgers want to come out of this weekend with a win, they need to keep Fleming at bay. If they manage to do that, they will be saying “Bye Bye Bye” to Illinois come Sunday afternoon.last_img read more
