Rapport

RFG Holdings, which manufactures Rhodes and Bull Brand canned products, believes the worst may be behind food producers when it comes to rampant raw material price increases across global markets.

RFG, reporting results for the year ended 2 October 2022 on Wednesday, said it had been forced to pass on price increases of 14.1% to consumers during the period under review to cope with price increases north of 30% for tinplate and 20% for paper, for example.
