The cost of bacon sandwiches is set to soar thanks to rising prices of pork and butter.

An average £2.50 bacon butty is set to cost more as the essentials are hit by price hikes of up to 90 per cent.

International market figures show pork prices have hit a four-year high and butter is trading at almost twice as much since last year.

According to international bank, Rabobank, demand continues to outstrip supply which has a knock on effect for price tags here in the UK.

Butter production has also fallen by seven per cent with prices rising significantly as makers are turning their attention to cheddar for its higher profit margins. 

The Grocer magazine said of the butter crisis: “Prices have kept rising due to low supplies in the EU and high demand.”
