What is the impact of historically high inflation on the UK consumer landscape?

The average UK consumer is experiencing a severe cost-of living crisis as inflation surges to a forty-year high and the price of goods continues to rise. This shock is the result of the sharply increasing costs of commodities, energy, and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, and is threatening FMCG manufacturers, retailers, and foodservice operators’ ability to survive and grow. Inflation will have a profound effect on many consumer-facing industries in 2022 and beyond.

Morrisons’ new recruit will be responsible for picking and packing customer orders from over 50 stores in the country, reported The Times. 

Earlier this year, the partners expanded their same-day, online grocery delivery service to Prime members in most of the largest cities across the UK. 

Besides Morrisons, other UK retailers like Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda also announced plans to expand their online home delivery operations amid a surge in demand as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.  

In separate development, Morrisons has extended its commitment to making instant payments to its smaller suppliers and farmers until the end of January. 

The move is part of the retailer’s plan to support them through the pandemic and provide stability. 

Since March, Morrisons has been making these immediate payments to help small food makers and farmers with their cashflow. 

Morrisons chief executive David Potts said: “Suppliers and farmers have told us they face ongoing pressure and we want to be there for them during this challenging period.  

 We highly value the continued and consistent efforts of British farmers and small suppliers and want to say thank you and extend support where we can.” 

Last month, Morrisons reduced the price of more than 400 of the most popular items across its stores as part of the retailer’s effort to help households on a budget.
