A cross-Canada survey by The Canadian Press showed that the 20-cent cup of coffee is begin- ning to appear on menus many areas. The 15-cent cup of coffee Is most common and there are still some places that charge only 10 cents. A Montreal restaurant tem- pered its price increase by changing its policy on refills: Before the increase it was 15 cents for each cupful but now that the price is 20 cents the fill is free. "Coffee is a sensitive item and we don't like to raise the price unless we have one restaurant manager said. The most common reasons given for price increases were increases in the wholesale price of coffee and higher labor costs. "Crop failures in Brazil and other parts of South America have caused an increase in the wholesale price of a spokesman for Brooke Bond of Canada, Montreal, said. SUPPLIES 40 PER CENT Brazil supplies about 40 per cent of the world's coffee beans and wholesalers said heavy frosts last year destroyed mil- lions of trees. A spokesman for General Foods of Toronto Ltd. said cof- fee prices for the wholesaler have jumped 40 per cent in the last year. "Our coffee beans cost on the average 20 cents more a pound tban they did a year he said, "but we liave held tie in- crease at 17.3 cents a pound for retailers in an effort to fight in- flation." In St. John's, Nfld., some downtown restaurants that are part of chains have raised the price to 20 cents while others ol the same chain still charge 15 cents. The 15-cent price was the rate in practically ail restaurants checked in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Some snack bars in the Dartmouth-Halifax area still charge 10 cents. EXPECT GENERAL RISE In Montreal the 20-cent cup ol coffee was not uncommon and most restaurant spokesmen said they believe a general increase to 20 cents is coming. In Ottawa coffee costs only 10 cents at downtown snack bars that have a large volume busj- n e s s. Downtown restaurants charge 15 cents and some places 20 cents. In Toronto it is 15 cents in most places wlu'Ie the price at several restaurants has gone to 20 cents. On the Prairies and in British Columbia, 15 cents a rap is common and many places still charge 10 cents. The 20-cent cup is rare. Restaurant managers in sev- eral areas cited increased oper- ating costs in pressure on prices. New minimum wage laws increased payroll costs. Rapeseed Price Control Wanted OTTAWA (CP) A rapeseed marketing committee report is- sued here advocates the reduc- tion of the IS-cents-a-bushel limit in price fluctuation set for rapeseed by the Winnipeg Grain Exchange. The report also calls for the establishment of Thunder Bay as a delivery point for rapeseed traded in the futures market at the exchange, and recommends delivery quotes for all rapeseed except that used for seed or de- velopment of new varieties. The main recommendations of ths report were made public by Otto Laog, minister without portfolio responsible for the wheat board. It was compiled by a three- man committee consisting of James McAnsh, Vancouver, ex- ecutive director1 of the Rape- seed Association of Canada; Forrest Hetland, N a i c a m, Sask., president of the Hape- seed Growers Association of Saskatchewan; and Paul Babey, Edmonton, president of Unifarm. The committee said die cur- rent open-market system should be continued, but a complete study of other pos- sible marketing systems should be undertaken. Such a study should be fol- lowed by a plebiscite of produ- cer's to determine their choice 'or a marketing system. The .exchange's fluctuation unit is too high at 15 cents a 'Ushel, the report said, and price fluctuations should be substantially reduced. Initial quotas for the 1970-71 crop year should be substan- tially higher, it said. The committee said the es- tablishment of Th u n d e r Bay as a delivery point for the fu- tures market would provide better service for overseas and eastern crushers. FARMERS ON BOARD The freight rate situation for rapeseed should be investi- gated on an urgent basis, it said. There should be an immedi- ate increase in storage and shipping facilities for rapeseed at Vancouver. Other recommendations. At least two full time farmers should sit on the board of governors of tha Winnipeg Grain Exchange. should be more rigid self-discipline within the grain exchange and "failure to do so should lead to the appoint- ment of an independent author- ity to act as a supervisory body." All segments of the trade should take steps to develop a system of communication with producers.
