Observer UK Investigates Rising Food Prices

Alex Renton, in the The Observer Food Monthly, investates the rising price of eggs, "up by 35-39 per cent on the past 18 months," and finds that it's not the farmers and not the supermarkets - it's the middlemen:

The job: investigate the allegation that supermarkets have been taking advantage of the global food-price rises to carve some extra profit for themselves. It didn't seem like the hardest thing I've done for OFM. Line up few tearful chicken farmers, some smug retail buyers, a confused punter or two - it should all fall into place pretty easily, I thought.
