Global Highlights

  • During Q2-2016, FAO’s global cereal price index fell by 6 percent year-on-year but it is 3 percent up compared to Q1-2016. The increase is because of rising maize and rice prices. The FAO global food price index has increased and almost returned to the levels of June 2015 (-1%), because prices particularly for sugar and oil increased significantly.

  • The real price2 of wheat is 20 percent below Q2-2015.
    This is because world supplies are at record levels thanks to increased production as well as beginning stocks.
