Cost of living crisis… what will it mean for your business?

What it will mean is that your customers, the Big Grocery Retailers, will be using every means possible to claw back those hard-fought CPI’s you may have secured in the last 12 months, or less. If history can teach us anything in the Grocery sector, it’s that when the going gets ‘even tougher’ than usual, […]
