UK shop prices rose by an annual rate 0.3% in November, the first increase since May of 2019, according data released by the British Retail Consortium on Wednesday. That follows a 0.4% decline in October.

Food prices accounted for much of the pick up in retail inflation, rising by 0.6% between October and November. That took the annual rate up to 1.1%, the fastest pace since November of 2020, from 0.5% in October. Non-food prices declined by an annual rate of 0.1%, a much shallower decline than the 1.0% fall recorded in October, and the smallest fall since May of 2019.
