Baby formula companies are ‘manipulating prices’, WHO said (Picture: Getty)
The World Health Organisation has joined calls to take action over the price escalation of baby formula.
Baby formula companies are ‘exploiting’ vulnerable British families, it said, calling out the ‘profit-driven’ manufacturers for ‘manipulating the price’ of their products.
Prices of even the cheapest baby formula brands have skyrocketed by 45% in the past two years.
And many baby banks in the UK – similar to food banks – can’t cope with the demand as the cost of living crisis worsens.
