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. Consult GlobalData’s new whitepaper, Inflation in the UK: The Impact of Historically High Inflation on the UK Consumer Landscape, to better understand shifts in consumer behavior and their impact on spending patterns, as well as the implications for UK businesses. This whitepaper covers:  
  • Why has global inflation returned with a vengeance?
  • What is the current inflation situation in the UK?
  • What impact is inflation having on UK retail sales?
  • What tactics are businesses relying on to tackle the effects of high inflation?
  • How are consumers changing their behaviors to cope with the higher cost of living?
  • Which industry sectors are most vulnerable to reduced consumer demand?
  • How is the government responding to high inflation?
  • How long will high inflation last in the UK?
  • How can your company survive and thrive in a high inflation environment?

The company last week officially unveiled the second line at its factory in Milton Keynes, north of London, which it opened in early 2016.

Olivier Ripoche, the managing director of Brioche Pasquier’s UK arm, told just-food the business already has room for a third line at the facility and had plans to expand the site for more.

“Part of our business plan when we decided we needed to produce here was we said we needed to have the land for six lines. We said it would be in two phases – one for three lines and step by step we will put the three lines – and then we put three more,” Ripoche said.

He said the third production line – which is set to produce its Pitch brand – could be up and running in 2019 or 2020, with the additional lines potentially coming into place in the years after, although plans have yet to be finalised.

“It will be six [lines] maximum and, then, if we need another factory, we will build another factory, on the same scale and the same system.”
