Walkers and Birds Eye set to raise prices as pound weakens

Walkers and Birds Eye are set to raise the prices of some items due to the falling strength of the pound.

The pound has fallen 18% against the US dollar since June’s UK Brexit vote.

Walkers said that while its potatoes were British, it imported a number of different ingredients and materials to produce a finished packet of crisps.

These items include seasonings, oil for frying and key raw materials used in its packaging film.
