Food Price Monitoring and Analysis Bulletin No. 7 | August 2017

Monthly Report on Food Price Trends

The latest issue of the FPMA (Food Price Monitoring and Analysis) Bulletin FAO/GIEWS monthly report has been released. The monthly FPMA Bulletin reports food price trends at world, regional and country level with a focus on countries where prices of one or more basic food commodity are at abnormal high levels in main markets. 

Main highlights of this issue are: Higher international prices of wheat on quality concerns, particularly for higher protein grain; while at sub-regional level, a general decline of cereal prices in East Africa, with the main exception of Ethiopia, where maize prices reached record highs due to uncertain prospects for the 2017 crops, and the sharp decline in potato prices in CIS countries with the new harvest.
