Pizza Hut on UK Inflation

Challenge

Be Broadcast and Pizza Hut teamed up to tackle UK inflation issues. The boss of Pizza Hut in the UK and Ireland warned customers of a price rise. They say it is inevitable that prices will have to rise to account for surging inflation, made worse by difficulties across the sector in finding new staff.

Neil Manhas said while the business was doing its best to shield diners at restaurants and at home from rising costs, this would not be sustainable in the longer term.

He was speaking hours after the Office for National Statistics revealed that the headline measure of inflation had hit an annual rate of 7% in March, driven up by higher fuel, energy, food and fashion costs.
