Grocery Bill Inflation Might Have Peaked

Provided current trends hold, shoppers should get some relief from relentless price increases at the grocery store.

This week, Europe’s largest food and personal-care companies reported big price rises for the three months through June. Evian water maker Danone and its rival Nestlé are charging roughly 7% and 8% more for their goods respectively than they were this time last year. Unilever’s brands, including Ben & Jerry’s and Magnum ice cream, cost 11% more on average.
