As part of ongoing Hartman Group research, we asked consumers to weigh in on topics that connect food, grocery shopping and other aspects that link to inflationary trends and spending habits today. Our infographic slideshow 3 Things to Know About Food, Inflation and Consumers Today highlights the difficulties many consumers are facing today when it comes their ability to budget for both essentials (like food, fuel and utilities) and also discretionary spending like eating out.

In just a few minutes of reading, learn more about consumer perceptions of changes in pricing on food, fuel and related expenses and how it is impacting their grocery shopping.

These topics, and more, will be explored further in our upcoming study, Food Sourcing in America.
