Stagnant inflation holding pubs and brewers back from full potential’ BBPA responds to latest inflation figures

“Warmer weather has been driving sales for pubs and breweries, but the fact remains that without inflation falling profits are wiped out and our sector has little to no opportunity for growth. These figures are worrying because whilst the public have been supporting British pubs and breweries it’s clear that purse strings will be tightened once again in the coming months and UK businesses will be impacted by that.

“Our industry supports jobs, livelihoods and communities in every single part of the country, but stagnant inflation is holding us back from our full potential. We need the Government to face the reality that inflation is still incredibly high and the critical impact this has on both consumers and the businesses they choose to spend their money with.”
