Experts Try to Reason the Increasing Cost of Food and Supplies

You may have noticed that you’re paying more at the grocery store for food and supplies. Kroger says that theft and “organized crime” are playing a big role in the reason why food prices have jumped over the last few months. In response, Kroger says they are being “more aggressive” in their approach in dealing with trade associations to negotiate food prices.   Kroger’s subsidiary stores in this area include Jay C and Ruler Foods.

Meanwhile, IU economist Kyle Anderson doesn’t refute Kroger’s claims about organized crime being a factor, but says staff shortages are probably playing a much bigger role than most people realize.
