Report: Whole Foods raises prices on hundreds of products

Posted: Updated:
EDISON -

The Wall Street Journal says Whole Foods is raising prices on some products to cover the rising costs of packaging, ingredients, and transportation.

According to the report, Whole Foods also raised prices back in December, and that was because some suppliers charged more due to inflation.

The report says the inflation-based increases range from 10 cents to several dollars with soaps, oils, detergent, and nut butters having some of the highest increases.

The average hike was 66 cents, the Journal says.
