As it's M&S crisps, I was expecting more extravagant flavours than the one's mentioned

Usually pay 65p each but still hot

I'm sorry but how can people get excited over paying 80p for A BAG OF CRISPS?

It's about 1 potato that cost about 2p to buy, add 1p of 'flavouring', 1p to peel and fry it, 2p for the bag, 3p for distribution and say 15p for store profit, that adds up to 24p.

The ridiculous mark up on 'crisp' pricing at normally over £1 per pack is absurd and a good example of effective collusion between the large retailers.

They could all sell these at 50p a bag and still make a good profit.

Not a bad price for premium crisps. Have to taste to see if they are premium.

Overall profitability in 2017; revenue £10.6bn, profit £176.4m (1.7%). There are a lot more costs than you are accounting for.

The crisps are better than average and equivalent to Kettle Chips IMO. Consumers can vote with their wallets whether they're worth the asking price. These are 150g bags.

Oh please.

The 'profit' of £176.4m is after they've stripped out exceptionals of a further £437.4m.

Also I'm talking about the core costs of this product, not using the profits from crisps to underwrite the rest of the groups inefficiencies or cr*p management decisions (bad decisions on clothes stocked, closing stores in wrong locations, etc....).

My point stands, 50p per bag would provide ample profit for this product (in fairness I did forget VAT so that would be 8p of the 50p selling price).

Inefficiency in large businesses is pretty normal and capex / opex has to be spread accross the product base when assessing value.

568 degrees so most people think this is good value. If you can produce a premium crisp, market and sell it at 50p for for 150g, go for it; you'll be rich.

There's inefficiencies, then there's gouging.

The 'retail' price for most of these 'premium' crisp products are around the £1.50 mark.

Are you honestly trying to tell me that 32p worth of product (and that includes all of 15p profit and 8p VAT, shipping, packaging etc...) can justify a 'retail' price of £1.50 (and yes I do realise that the elasticity of supply and demand effects the price....so if they can sell it for £1.50 they will), but it doesn't mean someone couldn't produce a quality product that would sell for 50p.

The reality is though that the major retailers wouldn't carry it as they'd rather run continual 'fake' reductions to drive demand.

Anyway selling crisps doesn't have the economies of scale to get rich without a lot of capex (and I'd be interested to know what you define as rich), when selling other things is far more profitable and less capital intensive.

They must be selling other stuff at a massive loss then or making up their annual accounts. I'm going to move on because this debate is going nowhere useful. Thanks OP for the post.
