Our staple foods such as bread, potatoes, milk and meat may be in shorter supply than usual this year and prices to consumers may have to rise.  Farmers say this is the cost of the 2 month drought and heatwave across the UK.  

Whilst it is difficult to say exactly what price rises may come, the NFU say farmgate prices are likely to increase.  Retailers will have to decide whether to pass on such rises to consumers.
