Default Price of chicken set to rise, UK's largest supplier warns

[The UK's largest poultry seller has warned
that the price of chicken is set to rise
because of supply chain problems.
The chief executive of 2 Sisters Food Group,
Ronald Kers, said that "in reality food is too cheap".

Mr Kers said that the price of chicken, the UK's
most popular meat, should be higher
to reflect the extra costs the business is facing.

The firm has 600 farms and 16 factories across the UK.

Mr Kers told the BBC's Today programme that
the company has had to cope with
additional costs because of Brexit, Covid, labour
shortages and logistics issues.

He added that the "significant"
inflated costs of packaging,
energy and CO2 were also
"bulking up the price of food".]

I think it's fair to now predict, just about everything will now be going up and some things considerably so.
