Food Marketing Costs Rose Little in 1992

Food marketing costs rose 2.2 percent in 1992 to about $372 billion-the smallest increase in the last 20 years. This slight rise was the result of only small price increases for most inputs purchased by the food industry. Higher labor costs accounted for most of 1992's increase. Other inputs- such as packaging, energy, and transportation-rose little, while profits dropped.
