  • ‘Perfect storm’ of causes will have a ‘perfect storm’ of effects:
    • Labour shortages = increased labour costs
    • Ingredients shortages = increased costs
    • Energy demands = increased costs
    • Bureaucracy increases = increased costs
    • Stockpiling increases = increased costs
  • Do you really think all will be contained within official ‘inflationary adjustments.

  • Your category, your call…
