Cucumbers were at the top of UK inflation charts in March 2023

In March, cucumbers, olive oil and cheese topped Britain's inflation chart. Traditional fish and chips saw the biggest price rise for diners. The cost of a cucumber was up a cool 52% in the 12 months to March, at an average of 84 pence ($1.05) each, while olive oil cost 49% more. The price of 'hard cheese' - a category which includes Swiss cheeses emmental and gruyere - rose 44% and the more popular cheddar cost an extra 42% at 9.29 pounds a kilo.

Sharp rises in food prices have continued to squeeze consumers in Britain and across much of Europe, even as the average rate of inflation across goods and services as a whole has started to decline.
