FAO food price index suggests soil education trends

The agricultural organization of the United Nations (FAO) published an assessment to the development of global food prices starting of the month December 2014. The year food prices 2014 to double so high at approximately 200 classified on the basis of the average of the years 2002-2004 = 100. Withdrawing the general inflation rate, then is the only rd 50% increase.

The peak of the food price index was in the year 2012. The year 2014 has again strongly contributed to its reduction. While milk prices made the largest contribution. But also cereals, vegetable oils, sugar and meat were food prices to below.

Identified according to the FAO is a bottoming in the meantime . The prices for milk are less strongly. In the case of cereals and vegetable oils, upward trends are already visible. The meat prices remain higher in particular by the world's scarce beef.

In the coming year 2015 food prices could reverse according to FAO quite in a reversal of the trend upwards. Upward are made in the grain market. Signs of weak harvest results in Russia, the Ukraine and some other countries suggest that wheat and corn not more so abundantly available in the coming year.

In the meat sector the world's depleted bovine herds for responsible, that beef some time remains scarce and expensive. The reconstruction of meat cattle takes finally several years.  

In the pork , there are distortions of the usual trade flows through the Russian import ban . While in Europe, the pig prices to low price levels remain booms are in Brazil and North America. Russia's and China's pork prices have returned to normal.

The poultry meat benefits from the tight supply of red meat, so the course get to rise again.

The decline in milk prices is an end according to the FAO in the course of the year 2015. On the supply side, the falling prices contribute to the reduction of production. On the demand side, the Chinese import demand as a result of inventories aufgezehrter will again contribute to a stronger import behavior. An economic recovery could be supported by the low crude oil prices.

Similar developments pave the vegetable oils and fats, and sugar to.  

If no serious market disruptions by weather conditions, political coups or other economic slumps, the slightly higher food prices will evolve. An relapse in previous low price regions is not recognizable.
