Greggs warns of rising price pressures and shortages but plots store expansion | Business News

Greggs has announced plans to accelerate the pace of new store openings despite admitting disruption from staff and ingredient shortages in the UK supply chain crisis.

The bakery chain, which had admitted “temporary interruptions” in the supply of some ingredients just over a month ago, said on Tuesday that it was expecting cost pressures to only increase as the winter got into gear – raising the prospect of those being passed on to customers.

It revealed a 3.5% rise in like-for-like sales in the third quarter of its financial year compared to pre-COVID crisis levels despite the headwinds facing the business including difficulty hiring new workers amid record vacancy levels.

Greggs said it benefited from “staycations” during August and that effect continued into September as more people returned to offices.
