Analysts say higher prices are likely coming this summer for corn-based products, like tortillas, because of a surge in grain prices.

The price of corn has risen by more than 30% in 2021, its highest price in nearly eight years, according to MarketWatch.

Retailers are expected to absorb the initial increase, but consumers may notice the rise in prices later this summer.
