"The Shop Price Index(SPI) measures price changes within a basket of both Food and Non-Food items. The SPI is administered by Nielsen, who collate and analyse the data on behalf of the BRC. The index provides an indicator of the direction of price changes in retail outlets. The BRC launched the Shop Price Index to give an accurate picture of the inflation rate of 500 of the most commonly bought high street products in stores."
