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.

The site is located next to the world foods manufacturer’s existing plant in the town of Harwich, Essex, and has been built following a GBP2m (US$2.6m) investment. New products have already rolled off the production line – Thai Dragon Sweet Chilli Prawn Crackers and Thai Dragon Thai Cracker Mix – which have listings in discount retailer Aldi.

A spokesperson confirmed the company now has six manufacturing plants.

As well as snacks, Surya Foods’ portfolio also consists of rice, noodles, pulses, ready meals, spreads and sauces, among other lines.

The new facility will produce other snacks such as corn puffs, fruit, nut and seed selections, and mixed savouries originating from across the globe and destined for the retail and foodservice channels. The investment has created 30 additional jobs. 

Managing Director Harry Dulai said: “During the last 20 years, in response to the UK’s more adventurous culinary tastes, we have taken Surya Foods from rice production and world food importers to a major manufacturer of leading mainstream brands. We are passionate about authentic tasting food products and have poured all our expertise into this new facility, which will enable us to produce some of the world’s favourite snacks right here in Essex.”
