Food Price Monitoring and Analysis Bulletin No. 11 | December 2017

Monthly Report on Food Price Trends

FAO/GIEWS monthly report on recent food price developments at world, regional and country level with focus on developing countries. It includes warnings on countries where prices of one or more basic food commodities are at abnormal high levels which could negatively impact access to food.

Main highlights of this issue are the relative stability in maize and wheat export prices and the strengthening in international prices of rice; while at the subregional level, the further decline of cereal prices in East and West Africa with the 2017 harvests, with the notable exception of the Sudan, where food prices spiked in November due to the depreciation of the Sudanese Pound in the parallel market.

The full Bulletin is available in English and selected abstracts in Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish and Russian.
