Food Price inflation accelerates for seventh consecutive month

Is it time to worry about food inflation? The Food and Agriculture Organization's Food Price Index rose for a seventh consecutive month in December, led by dairy products and vegetable oils. The FAO Food Price Index averaged 107.5 points last month versus 105.2 points in November. The benchmark, which tracks global food prices of cereals, oilseeds, dairy products, meat, and sugar, averaged 97.9 points for 2020, a three-year high, and a 3.1% rise from 2019 levels.
