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?

During this year’s Awareness Week from 14 – 20 May the charity will be raising awareness of the symptoms of coeliac disease and the importance of early diagnosis and sticking to a GF diet to prevent complications of the disease. These include anaemia, osteoporosis, neurological conditions and although rare, there’s an increased risk of small bowel cancer.

It is estimated that the hospitality industry is missing out on an estimated £100 million worth of gluten free business a year.

Over 3300 venues have gained Coeliac UK’s GF accreditation since 2012. These caterers are seeing the business benefits associated with the scheme because it’s the people with coeliac disease who decide where to eat out with friends and family, so by catering for the person who doesn’t eat gluten the business case speaks for itself.

Many manufacturers, retailers and caterers are supporting Coeliac UK’s Awareness Week this year including Côte brasseries who have developed a special Prestige Gluten Free menu, offering two courses for £15.95 and three courses for £18.95, available at all their restaurants with a wide range of menu options. Indigo restaurant at One Aldwych, The Strand, is offering a special three course menu which includes a complimentary glass of Lallinger champagne. Other offers include “2 for 1” on fish and chips at Scotts Fish and Chips sites near York.

Rupi Zani, quality and safety director, PizzaExpress, commented: “Since gaining GF accreditation in 2012, we have been delighted with the success of our gluten free menu. Customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and business levels have exceeded our expectations – so much so that we opened our own manufacturing site to make our own gluten free pizza bases.”

Alongside GF accreditation, Coeliac UK offers an online interactive catering training module which takes only an hour and a half to complete and doesn’t have to be completed in one session. Readers can take advantage of a special discounted price of £25+VAT per log-in compared with the usual price of £35+VAT until the end of May 2018.
