Food inflation is expected to hit 3.8% before the end of 2014, according to a report.

Prestige Purchasing predicted fruit prices would rise by 10%, wine by 16% and vegetables and meat by more than 5%.

The agency's chief executive, David Read, said the rise was likely to continue for the "foreseeable future."

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Peter Allen: "We're seeing the impacts of climate change... and also the impact of population growth, which means we have many more mouths to feed."
