When was the price increased prior to that and when is the next price increase?

That'll be the only way to tell if prices are jumping up or you just happened to witness a price increase.

The metal/paper in the foil wrapper is imported - THAT will be the excuse, anyway.

And what about the evident price fixing of baby food? Seems a little coincidental that all supermarkets and smaller non-national stores all increased prices by the exact same amount for Aptamil stuff. **** me right off.

Isn't baby formula pricing fixed by the Government? They cannot have it on offer nor can they advertise it.

Bread went up a few years ago when there was a bad year for the wheat crop and it never came down, now it is ratcheting up again!

That's even worse! A de facto price fixing cartel, sold as if they are 'doing the punter a favour'.

But the price has actually gone up. Bit of bed time reading.

So, the Farmers will no doubt get a generous extra whiff of Dave Lewis's farts to cover their increasing costs while He pockets the actual money increase. And who did this turbo-numpty work for previously??
Unilever!!!

So you happened to witness a price rise. What makes it "a price jump at lightning speed"?
Anybody would think Tesco was raising its prices on things on a daily basis. Be careful, in 2 weeks time that same butter will be £32 a block. oO

No. I WOULD call a jump of 16% a lightening quick rise. So would virtually all of the commentators above...

Did you not like Tesco's special offers? Their multi-buys are wonderful, 2 for the price of 3???

I see, I just found this news report on 22 Sept 2016. I wonder how the trial is getting on? There should be equivalence law brought out to equate the amount of financial fraud (though appear to be victimless at face value) to the amount of murders. Say have an arbitrary £1m is equivalent to murder of a person. ( Or take an average of statistical average on the amounts of the money that people had murdered for in historical records of murder and manslaughter and then adjusted using the amount of money for contract killing, again from using historical records. And then weigh this average by the mens rea in the amount of self control and discipline that the person should have had in job role description in his/her job application CV.)
.
The beauty of the above proposal of equivalence in law is that the market price for sentencing is determined fairly using market forces as in retail supply and demand.

Lightning travels at around 220,000 miles per hour when travelling downwards from a cloud, and then reaches a speed of 220,000,000 miles per hour when moving skyward on its return stroke.

Aldi still sell salted butter for 80p and unsalted for 85p

Yeah, we are still lucky, I can just remember being told that dad was getting paid twice a week, because inflation was so high, the money he was given on Monday would only buy half the groceries by Thursday.

A LOT of these price rises are simple gouging, with BREXIT as an excuse; since the EU milk quota system was abolished, milk prices at the farm gate have crashed, so baby milk, butter, cheese etc, should all be going DOWN in price.

Brexit or no brexit, the £ goes up and down like a yo-yo because of the way we couldn't stablise our economy due to heavy reliance on too many risky variables through poor national economic policy that couldn't take the risks out. Last time £ was this low was 2008/9, then it was due again to poor economic management, namely , piling into mortgage lending and banks lent out too much with no capital and bust the system right under the noses of the government and the financial scrutiny watchdogs. That's wasn't due to EU at all. And after nearly 10 years, the taxpayers' contribution has yet to be reimburesed as the busters dug such a deep hole that we haven't got out of yet (Lloyds, Royal Bank of Scotland Group) and even Santander still suffer the repercussions of Enron collapse (insufficient money to invest in their infrastructure improvement).

Pricing isn't fixed but they aren't allowed to do any special deals, advertising, loyalty points etc. on the up to 6 months formula. EU regs.
