Greggs customers appalled after price of sausage rolls raised by 5p

Greggs customers are fuming because sausage rolls are becoming more expensive.

The popular item in both is meaty and vegan form is set to undergo a price increase of 5p while other items on the menu will be hiked up between 5 to 10 per cent.

Before if you had £1 in your pocket you could easily exchange it for the meat-filled (or vegan meat filled) pastry, but now you will need to scrabble around in your pocket to look for an extra 5p since £1.05 is the new price.

With this information fresh in their minds, people took to Twitter to express their dismay:

A spokesperson for the bakery chain told Bloomberg why this devastating incident is happening. They said: “Ingredients and labour costs have been rising and Greggs is not immune from that.

“The company does absorb some of the cost but has put up prices by about 5-10 pence across the range.”

Meanwhile, they explained that the decision was made after an end of year review and said Greggs last raised its prices in December 2020, by a similar amount, but stressed that it remained “good value”.

Not a great sign for how 2022 is going to play out.
