UK farmers threaten to stop planting if supermarkets do not raise prices

UK fruit and vegetable growers have warned supermarkets that, unless they drop their opposition to price increases, next year’s crops will not be grown. Input costs for farmers, such as fertilizer and energy bills, rose by 22% in the year to September 30.

This amounts to the second-highest increase on record. According to the farming co-operative AF Group, those costs have yet to be passed onto shoppers, though, resulting in a painful situation for all food suppliers.
