WE ARE conducting a very simple Food Prices exercise during 2013. We will be following the prices of milk, butter, bread and carrots at the big Co-op store on Hull Road, Hedon.
‘It is thought that the carrot first came from Afghanistan sometime around the 7th Century AD, when they were originally … purple!‘ – Great British Carrots website
|Item||Price May 2013||Change from last month||Change since Jan 2013|
|Milk – Co-op 1 pint||£0.50|
|Margarine – I can’t believe it’s not butter (500g)||£1.80||+0.80|
|Bread – Co-op Wholemeal (800g)||£0.89|
|Carrots – Co-op (500g)||£0.90||+0.05||*-0.10|
Carrots are the product that change almost every month. Last month a 500g bag cost £0.85 and included 50% extra = 750g. This month they cost £0.90 but for a new size bag of 600g.
Actual Carrot Prices so far in 2013 (always bought in the first week of the month):
- Jan – 50p – 500g (* This was an offer price so we listed £1 as our bench mark in January)
- Feb – £1 – 500g
- Mar – 50p – 500g
- Apr – 85p – 750g (* 50% extra)
- May – 90p – 600g
