FAO Says Food Prices Jumped to Record Levels in March

الفاو: أسعار الغذاء ترتفع لمستوى قياسي جديد في مارس الماضي


Rome: The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said that world food commodity prices made a significant leap in March to reach their highest levels ever, as war in the Black Sea region spread shocks through markets for staple grains and vegetable oils.

The FAO Food Price Index averaged 159.3 points in March, up 12.6 percent from February when it had already reached its highest level since its inception in 1990. The Index tracks monthly changes in the international prices of a basket of commonly-traded food commodities. The latest level of the index was 33.6 percent higher than in March 2021.

The FAO Cereal Price Index was 17.1 percent higher in March than in February, driven by large rises in wheat and all coarse grain prices largely as a result of the war in Ukraine. The Russian Federation and Ukraine, combined, accounted for around 30 percent and 20 percent of global wheat and maize exports, respectively, over the past three years. World wheat prices soared by 19.7 percent during the month, exacerbated by concerns over crop conditions in the United States of America. Meanwhile, maize prices posted a 19.1 percent month-on-month increase, hitting a record high along with those of barley and sorghum. Contrasting trends across the various origins and qualities kept the March value of FAOs Rice Price Index little changed from February, and thus still 10 percent below its level of a year earlier.

The FAO Vegetable Oil Price Index rose 23.2 percent, driven by higher quotations for sunflower seed oil, of which Ukraine is the worlds leading exporter. Palm, soy and rapeseed oil prices also rose markedly as a result of the higher sunflower seed oil prices and the rising crude oil prices, with soy oil prices further underpinned by concerns over reduced exports by South America.

The FAO Sugar Price Index rose 6.7 percent from February, reversing recent declines to reach a level more than 20 percent higher than in March 2021. Higher crude oil prices were a driving factor, along with currency appreciation of the Brazilian Real, while favorable production prospects in India prevented larger monthly price increases.

The FAO Meat Price Index increased by 4.8 percent in March to reach an all-time high, led by surging pig meat prices related to a shortfall of slaughter pigs in Western Europe. International poultry prices also firmed in step with reduced supplies from leading exporting countries following avian flu outbreaks.

The FAO Dairy Price Index rose 2.6 percent and was 23.6 percent higher than in March 2021, as quotations for butter and milk powders rose steeply amid a surge in import demand for near and long-term deliveries, especially from Asian markets.


روما: قالت منظمة الأغذية والزراعة التابعة للأمم المتحدة “فاو”، يوم أمس، إن أسعار الغذاء العالمية قفزت إلى مستوى قياسي جديد في شهر مارس الماضي إذ أربكت الحرب في أوكرانيا أسواق الحبوب والزيوت النباتية.

وسجل مؤشر الفاو لأسعار الغذاء، الذي يقيس السلع الغذائية الأكثر تداولا عالميا، 159.3 نقطة في المتوسط الشهر الماضي مقابل 141.4 نقطة بعد تعديل بالزيادة في فبراير.

وسجل المؤشر قبل التعديل في فبراير 140.7، وهو رقم قياسي في ذلك الوقت.

من جانبه، قال رئيس الوزراء الأوكراني دينيس شميهال اليوم إن محصول الحبوب هذا العام من المرجح أن يقل 20 بالمئة عن مستواه العام الماضي بسبب تقلص المساحة المنزرعة بعد الحرب الروسية، لافتا إلى أن هناك نقصا في الوقود للمزارعين، لكن أوكرانيا تعرف كيف تزودهم بالوقود.

وقال أيضا إن أوكرانيا لديها مخزون كبير من الحبوب والزيوت النباتية ويمكنها توفير الطعام لسكانها.
