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.

Müller said it has already raised its total output but with demand expected to remain high and some workers absent due to self-isolation, it is now looking for up to 300 additional employees..

The vacancies range from delivery drivers and dairy technicians to factory operators, packaging operatives and garage mechanics.

Bergen Merey, CEO of Müller’s yogurt and desserts business in the UK and Ireland, said: “Dairy is the cornerstone of Britain’s food industry, so our products and supply chain have a major role to play in helping to feed the nation. This is no longer simply a duty, this is now an obligation.

“We’re part of an entrepreneurial, progressive and vibrant family-run business, and people are crucial to our success. Our message is simple, if you’re available and have the necessary skills and qualifications, then we’d love to hear from you.”

Milk & More, Müller’s delivery service in the UK, is also looking to recruit. It is seeking to bring in an additional 100 milkmen and women following a record 25,000 new customers signing up for the service in the past week.

It is looking for new recruits to deliver essential food and household items.

In the UK, Müller develops, manufactures and markets a range of branded and private-label dairy products made with milk from 1,600 local farmers.

Parent company Unternehmensgruppe Theo Müller employs 24,000 people throughout Europe.
