Bunnings fizz to increase across Australia due to cost of living

The price of driftwood and bread in Bannings will rise for the first time in 15 years.

The price of driftwood and bread in Bannings will rise for the first time in 15 years.

Bunnings sausage will rise from $2.50 to $3.50 in stores across Australia from July 23 as community groups struggle to cover the rising cost of ingredients.

The price of drinks will remain $1.50.

The price rose for the first time in 15 years.

During this time, food and non-alcoholic beverage prices rose by more than 51 percent, according to the ABS.

The change came after 100 community groups told Bannings that the rising cost of materials had affected their fundraising efforts.

“The inflationary environment has certainly led to many of our community groups coming to us and asking for this change,” Bunnings managing director Mike Schneider told the Herald Sun.

“We understand very well what a really important role the humble snag plays in the psyche of the community,”

“And no doubt any price move, especially in the current environment, will attract some attention.”

The price will rise by $1 on Saturday July 23rd and all funds raised will continue to go into pockets community groups, not for profit and charity.

“It’s a pretty simple recipe – it’s driftwood, some bread, some sauce and onions to taste,” Schneider said.

“But it actually helps raise much needed funds for local community groups…whether it be the local school or sports club or whatever in the community.”

Bannings has helped raise over $140 million for charity over the past five years.
