American food companies are preparing for another round of price increases. Soaring production costs have forced them to pass on price increases to the consumer.

I'd like to learn what the difference between ' price increase' and 'price rise'. Can I replace "price rises" with " price increases'? Could someone else illustrate? Thank you!

Here's my take:

Do you rise or increase the price of something?
To me, they mean the same.

Do you rise or increase the price of something?

In BrE, the noun rise means a movement upwards or an increase in an amount or quantity: a rise in interest rate.

It can also mean an increase in pay: Should we ask our boss for a rise. In AmE, this is a raise.
