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 the increase in the benchmark US price of wheat because of weather-related concerns and the general decline in maize export prices on crop harvest pressure; while at country level, the high level of grain prices in Ethiopia and the increase in rice prices to record levels in Bangladesh.
