Brexit Has Added 6% to UK Household Food Bills, Research Shows

  • Typical family paying £210 more a year after exit from EU
  • Study follows BOE official’s claim of Brexit hit to inflation

Brexit has added £210 to food bills for the average UK household, with low-income families hardest hit, according to research from the London School of Economics.

Over the two years through the end of 2021, food prices rose 6% as a result of additional business costs caused by so-called non-tariff barriers in the form of border checks, the study showed.
