Max Armstrong explores how food and restaurant companies are tackling the challenge of higher prices

July 19, 2021

Max Armstrong shares how supermarkets and restaurants are responding to rising food prices. Major restaurant chains are raising prices, but it's more than higher commodity prices contributing to this increase. Transportation, labor, and packaging are pushing up prices, and company leaders are saying consumers are accepting those increases. Some companies are avoiding price increases, but shrinking discounts.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
