07.10.2016

The FAO Food Price Index* (FFPI) averaged 170.9 points in September 2016, up almost 5 points (2.9 percent) from August and 10 percent above the corresponding month last year.

The September value is the highest since March 2015. Barring a small dip in July, the FFPI has been going up steadily since the start of the year, mainly supported by a surge in sugar prices and more moderate increases for dairy products, meat and oils. Last month’s rise in the FFPI was driven mostly by stronger dairy and sugar quotations.
