The British Poultry Council has welcomed today's announcement that the cost of food will rise further over the coming months for consumers, as food producers struggle with their costs. Chief executive Peter Bradnock said:
"The costs of wheat, soyameal and corn - which are the key feed ingredients for the poultry industry and a number of other sectors - have increased significantly this year."
"If consumers are to continue to enjoy the secure supply of British poultry, food prices need to accurately reflect cost increases."
