A new report says food prices in Canada are expected to rise to record highs next year.

Canada’s Food Price Report predicts the average family of four will pay an extra $966 for food in 2022, for a total annual grocery bill of nearly 15-thousand dollars. 

That’s a seven per cent rise compared to this year, the biggest jump ever predicted by the report.

Sylvain Charlebois, lead author and Dalhousie University professor, says the era of cheap food has ended.

He says prices have been rising steadily since 2010 but the pandemic accelerated that trend.

Tyson Foods Sales Rise as Meat Prices, Restaurant Demand Jump | Investing News

By Karl Plume and Praveen Paramasivam

(Reuters) -Soaring meat prices helped Tyson Foods Inc overcome pandemic-related labor shortages at its plants as the top U.S. meat packer reported a stronger-than-expected quarterly profit on Monday and forecast improved revenue in the year ahead.

The Springdale, Arkansas-based company reported a double-digit jump in sales and earnings in the fiscal fourth-quarter ended Oct. 2, including a record quarter in its beef segment despite a 20% surge in cattle prices.

Tyson shares were up around 4% in midmorning trading.

Wusong Road, Chinese American Restaurant and Tiki Bar, Slated for Late Fall Harvard Square Debut | News

Harvard Square will soon welcome Wusong Road, a newly established Chinese American restaurant and tiki bar headed by chef Jason Doo and Thomas Brush, the owner of Felipe’s Taqueria.

Wusong Road is aiming for a “late fall” opening on 112 Mt. Auburn St., the historic building where French restaurant Les Sablons used to be, Doo said in an interview. The new restaurant is located near Flour Bakery and the Harvard Square Hotel.

Doo said the restaurant has been in the works for a long time. He added that though he and his business partners formulated the business idea before the pandemic, the spike in anti-Asian sentiments during Covid-19 motivated them to delay the opening.

Doo said the team envisions Wusong’s first floor operating as a “rice plate” restaurant — with specialities including Chinese-style roast meats such as pork, duck, and chicken at an affordable price.

“We’re actually importing an imperial-style
