This bulletin provides information on price changes for the most commonly consumed staples and the potential impacts of these changes on the cost of the food basket. Staples contribute 40 - 80% of energy intake for the most vulnerable population groups in developing countries. Therefore, even a small increase in staple food prices has a high impact on overall food consumption, especially when the food basket is composed of very few staples.
The bulletin covers 60 countries over the period July to September 2009 .

High food prices and food insecurity persist despite improved cereal stocks
The latest FAO assessment of the world food production and supply situation shows food prices remaining high in several Asian countries despite the record 2008 cereal harvest and improved supplies. In three-fourths of 58 developing countries recently surveyed, food prices were higher than a year ago. The slow pace of commercial imports, food aid and government market interventions are keeping food prices high in Asia despite falling from 2008 peaks in international markets (see Figures 1 & 2).
This is the second Multi-annual Indicative Programme (IP) for the long-term component (Article 4) of the Instrument for Stability (IfS). It covers the three year period 2009-2011.
High food prices persist in developing countries despite an improved global cereal supply situation and sharp decline in international prices. This is affecting access to food of large numbers of low-income vulnerable populations.
A recent analysis of domestic food prices for 58 developing countries shows that latest prices are higher than a year earlier in 78 percent of the cases, and in 43 percent of the cases are higher than 3 months earlier. Mostly affected are sub-Saharan African countries.
