High Food Prices Not Affecting Consumer Demand

COLUMBIA, MO – Shoppers are apparently getting used to paying more for their groceries. University of Missouri Professor Scott Brown says food inflation is to blame for much higher prices on items like beef and pork:

(We frankly have not seen much of a demand if any slowdown because of those high prices. It seems like many consumers are willing to pay the higher prices for the products that we talk about.)

Brown says higher food prices are expected to continue for several months with some relief possible in the fall. He says things could change depending on fuel prices and the war in Ukraine.
