11.11.2016
The FAO Food Price Index* (FFPI) averaged 172.6 points in October 2016, up 1.2 points (0.7 percent) from September and 9.1 percent above the corresponding month last year.
 
Except for a short-lived drop in July, the Index has risen continuously since the start of the year. In October, sugar and dairy values rose sharply, while the cereal index made a modest increase. These gains coincided with sharp declines in the oils and meat indices, which kept the overall value of the FFPI only slightly above its September average.
