Food price inflation at its lowest in three years

Latest figures released show that food inflation at its lowest for at least three years. Trade association British Retail Consortium said food inflation slowed to 1.3 per cent last month from 2.9 per cent in January.
 The drop in food prices is driven largely by vegetables and fish. This is a good news for consumers, but for the fishing and farming community it is a bad news. The traders complain that they have to compete with cheaper imports.
