Food Prices Expected to Rise in the New Year

Posted: Updated:

Your grocery store receipt may look a bit higher after the first of the year, as food prices are expected to rise.

Last summer's drought has had a domino effect on the food industry, and now many grocer's are expecting to see the prices of meat and dairy products go up in the new year.

Besides the expired farm bill that could double dairy prices, the cost of feed for livestock has risen, having an effect on prices.

Both Oryana and Maxbauer Specialty Meat in Traverse City say they will try to curb costs for customers by providing discounts and deals, as well as advice on how to mix up your menu at home.

9 & 10's Meredith Barack and photojournalist Joel Deaner have more on how high they project prices may get.
