Why Is Bread Cheaper In The UK Than The US?

DavidT | Aug 10, 201811:37 AM

I spend several weeks a year in the UK and have noticed that bread in UK supermarkets typically sells for 1 Pound or so (currently $1.30). Bread in US supermarkets (at least in California, where I live) can sell from $2.50 to $4.00. Granted, the British Pound is currently weak vs.the US $.

I am not talking about premium/artisnal bread, just a basic loaf of whole wheat.
