Shop prices rose at their slowest rate in more than 18 months in January

According to the latest report from the British Retail Consortium (BRC), discounts and lower prices for milk and tea saw shop price inflation fall to 2.9%, from 4% in December.

Overall, prices are still going up in the shops but at a slower rate.

On average, food prices are still rising by more than 6% a year.

Separate data from research company Kantar said food price inflation fell at a slower rate in January due to fewer people buying promotional items compared with December.

It said some 86 million more lunchboxes were taken to work in 2023 as people sought to manage budgets more closely.

England and Wales see most company insolvencies since 1993

England and Wales saw the most company insolvencies since 1993 last year, although the rate of businesses going bust was not as severe as during the 2008-09 financial crisis when adjusted for a rise in the total number of companies, official data showed.

Britain's Insolvency Service, a government agency, said 25,158 companies were declared insolvent last year, up from 22,123 in 2022.

Last year 53.7 companies went insolvent out of every 10,000 trading, up from 49.6 in 2022. This was the highest rate since 2014 but much lower than the rate of 94.8 during the 2008/09 recession.
