Falling food prices heap fresh pain on struggling grocers

Britain's supermarket price war continues, according to data from the British Retail Consortium and Nielsen which shows that food prices dropped by 0.5% last month, following a 0.2% increase in August. It was the seventh month this year that food price growth was negative. The shop price index also revealed that food price deflation was mirrored by a fall of 2.9% in non-food prices. Clothing and footwear prices fell by 6%.
