ASX food stocks with modest price returns this month

With inflation skyrocketing across the global economy, the costs of living in many nations have soared. A mix of factors like COVID-19-related supply chain disruptions, labour shortages, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have inflicted pain on the economy and threatened the global food supply.  

In Australia, the annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) of food and non-alcoholic beverages rose 4.3% from March 2021 to March 2022. Amid rocketing grocery prices and strong demand, one must look for stocks whose prices might increase with inflation. Further, food stocks tend to be a hedge against plummeting markets as their products are always in demand.
