With the full-month data for November, we now estimate that Food at Home monthly inflation decelerated by a wider margin than what we observed in our early preview. We now expect that Food at Home monthly inflation decelerated by ~18 bps compared to Oct.
Compared to our early preview note, we observe stronger decelerations in most major sub-categories, notably in Fruits and vegetables. This was partially offset by an acceleration in Cereals products, albeit at a smaller magnitude than our previous estimate.
On an annual basis, owing in part to the base effect, we expect Food at Home's annual inflation to recede to ~11.7% in Nov 2022, from the pace of 12.4% in Oct.

Using the Odyssey retail point of sale dataset we have constructed some estimated CPI forecasts based on a simple and robust filtering and scoring methodology. We plan on releasing category and brand level insights bi-monthly.
