Food Price Monitoring and Analysis Bulletin No. 8 | October 2018

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 decline in international prices of wheat and maize, after the increase in August; at country level, the further sharp increase of maize prices to record levels in Nicaragua and the high prices of grains in the Sudan and South Sudan, due to the weak currencies and high production and transport costs. Currency depreciation was also supportive to prices of maize and wheat in Argentina.
