Cost of grocery shopping continues to rise

The cost of groceries is still on the rise – with the price of some items nearly doubling in the past two years.

A survey carried out by the Irish Independent shows that many household staples now cost nearly 9% more than 2011 – up from €209 to €227.

Biscuits, rashers, dog food and breakfast cereal all saw the biggest increase of 30-40%.

Out of the 53 products checked, 20 stayed the same and only five dropped in price.
