Reports

We’re known best for our Annual Food and Drink Inflation Report, often quoted in mainstream media. We also produce bespoke reports boiling down big data and expert analysis into digestible, comprehensive summaries specific to organisational needs. In addition, we send complimentary reports to all of our clients regularly.

FPI Reporting

The Foodservice Price Index (FPI) was independently developed by Prestige Purchasing and CGA Strategy specifically for the foodservice and catering sector as a more accurate and relevant alternative to the government’s Consumer Price Index (CPI). FPI analysed over four million lines of data points a month over the last two years which allows foodservice operators to more accurately track their performance vs food inflation.

The headline FPI figure will be released each month via the Prestige Purchasing News Bites newsletter, and more detailed information will be available to purchase via a subscription based product.
