Input costs

28 March 2008

Over the last two days we have reported on food companies being forced into operational changes under the strain of high input costs.

Only yesterday rice – which apparently provides one fifth of all the calories consumed by humans worldwide – hit a record high, jumping 30 per cent to $760 (£377) a tonne.

Have you seen high input costs affecting other areas? And if so, how’s your organisation working to combat them?
