Food Price Monitoring and Analysis Bulletin No. 1 | February 2018

Monthly Report on Food Price Trends
16/02/2018

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: Firmer international prices of wheat and maize due to weather-related concerns for 2018 crops and a weaker dollar; while at country level, the consecutive sharp increase in staple food prices in the Sudan after the removal of wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the Sudanese Pound.
