World Food Price Index

The data in this index shows monthly and annual food price movement from 1990 to 2010, reflecting the rapid price increases of 2008 and 2010-2011. For many low-income households, food price rises result in hunger. The World Food Price Index, compiled by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, consists of six commodity group price indices: meat, diary, cereals, sugar, oils and fats for a total of 55 commodities.
