This chapter pulls together the main insights from research on food inflation and food price dynamics in the EU and how aspects of competition in the food sector relate to these issues. The emphasis is on emerging research priorities covering, in particular, access to data to improve understanding of retail price dynamics. The chapter explores the potential of scanner data to provide more detailed insights on retail prices and how they can be used to address issues relating to the functioning of the food sector, as well as the necessity of making progress on addressing aspects of competition throughout the food sector as a whole. The chapter also notes the relevance of high-quality research for informing policymakers, and how the issues addressed in the chapters extend to countries beyond the EU.

Keywords:   food inflation, food price dynamics, competition, scanner data
