BBPA responds to latest inflation figures

Responding to today’s inflation figures Emma McClarkin Chief Executive of the British Beer and Pub Association said:

“Finally, we are seeing inflation head in the right direction, and this will be welcome news to pub and brewing businesses, but we’re not out of the woods as there is still a long way to go for the pressures on our customers and supply chains to feel the difference. 

“Our pubs and brewers need confidence to invest and grow their businesses, whilst their customers need reassurance that inflation will continue to slow, and prices fall to give people more spending power. This news is positive, but we need inflation to continue falling not just be a one off in order for our industry to perform to its full potential and support communities and economies across the country.”
