The rising fuel prices are having knock-on effects on the cost of food.

While this may be a large contributor to the cost of food production and delivery, there are other issues that may affect the price of the average grocery basket.

A new survey by Grain SA and others has found that South Africa’s poor road infrastructure is also impacting the cost of food. Potholes can cause a truck transporting fresh produce to overturn, damaging the precious cargo. So how do we address this?
