Rising food prices concern 76 pct of UK consumers

London, June 8 (UNI/Sputnik) Most people in the United Kingdom, or 76 per cent, are concerned about rising food prices, the government’s Food Standards Agency (FSA) said.
"The cost of food is now a major future concern for three out of four (76 per cent) UK consumers," the agency said in a study on Tuesday.
According to the research, the number of people who use food banks or charities continues to rise, from 9 per cent in March 2021 to 15 per cent in March 2022. The agency added that one in five Britons say they skip meals or reduce their portion size because they do not have enough money to buy groceries.
