Demand and supply in action - tea prices surge

The new Edexcel GCSE Business Unit 1 specification encourages students to look at commodity markets to develop their understanding of how demand supply interact to determine market prices.

As a leading exporter of tea, Keyna is benefitting from the surge in prices, after suffering from higher production costs in recent years.
