    Question re food prices

    Good post -good questions z48.I guess until some of these are answered there's not going to be much action in this stock.1st qtr results in terms of the actual profit margins and the eps should give us some direction-but that's not for a month.Until then I don't expect much.

    • In this type of inflationary period, increased food prices actually hurt consumers and vendors alike.

      Vendors normally pass on increased food productions costs but in the past year a perfect storm has enveloped: biofuels, acts of god (drought/bad weather), low supply and increasing demand in BRIC countries has put the balance of supply and demand out of phase.

      These increased prices will not subside. -Period. They will hopefully stabilize throughout this year. Willi Food and the industry will slowly wean consumers onto a new pricing platform. Some corporations choose to do it wholesale in one shot, Willi Food is trying its best to do it slowly so as to not lose customers. Margins will get crunched but profitability will get back on track ultimately once consumers are forced to absorb the price increases.
