    Customers buying pork at a food market in Shanghai, China. Prices of pork, a food staple in China, rose by 20.2% in July 2022 compared to a year ago, official data showed.Qilai Shen | Bloomberg | Getty Images BEIJING — China's consumer price index hit a two-year high in July as pork prices rebounded, according to official data released Wednesday. Prices of pork, a food staple in China, rose by 20.2% in July from a year ago. It marked the first increase since September 2020, according to official data accessed through Wind Information. In fact, pork prices posted their largest month-on-month surge on record — up by 25.6%, the data showed. Farmers' reluctance to sell — in hopes of getting higher prices in the future — contributed to July's pork price surge, said Bian Shuyang, agricultural products analyst at Nanhua Futures, in a statement. Looking ahead, Bian expects it will be difficult for pork prices to surpass July's levels. Two Chinese holidays in September and October will help support consumer demand for pork, Bian said. According to the analyst, live...

    High inflation and the money-making opportunities it's created have driven workers back to the restaurant industry, Danny Meyer told CNBC's Jim Cramer on Tuesday. "There's no question that menu prices are higher than they've ever been. But guess what that translates to – if you do have a tipping model in your restaurants, servers are making more money than they've ever made before," the restaurateur said in an interview on "Mad Money." The Union Square Hospitality Group founder added that the company's restaurants give a cut of their revenue to cooks since they are in non-tip eligible positions. The opportunity to make more money now than during low-inflationary times has driven workers back to restaurants, according to Meyers. "For the first time, we're actually on equal footing in terms of our talent count, as we were in 2020 when we first had to stop doing business," he said. Restaurants struggled with labor shortages after the Covid pandemic's onset in 2020 drove stores to shutter and reduce staffing levels. While the industry has recovered since the devastating blow with stores reopening,...

Meet the twin brothers behind the growing Black and Mobile delivery service in Philadelphia. “We support Black people, the Black business, the Black community, the dollar circulation,” David Cabello said. “All of that.” READ MORE: Eagles Center Jason Kelce Undergoes Routine "Cleanout" Elbow SurgeryIn today’s ever-growing food delivery industry, being mobile is important. But for twins David and Aaron Cabello being Black is essential. The 27-year-olds are behind the latest food delivery app Black and Mobile. They only deliver from Black-owned restaurants. “We’re in five markets.

It would have been a lot simpler, she said, if the man had just requested some food. "If you just ask, I am more than happy to make you something to eat," Garnier added to KABC. "But the fact he didn't say anything ... he just came in and just aggressively tried to steal our food is what got me." Dao is of the same mindset, telling the station, "I was ready to get down and use my hands if I needed to. We've been working hard, making food all day, and that belonged to somebody.

    Vegans have accused protestors of 'embarrassing the cause' after an activist group poured milk all over the floor of Harrods in an anti-dairy protest.   Animal Rebellion, an off-shoot of Extinction Rebellion, poured milk out of cartons in the food hall of the Knightbridge department store's food hall in a protest last month against the dairy industry - before sharing the footage of the protest on social media.  The group were forcibly removed after covering the luxury store's floor with milk which they claim was done to highlight the environmental impacts of the dairy industry. But vegans on social media have condemned the group's actions, saying they 'made us look like fools' and it was 'detrimental rather than helpful'.  Members of Animal Rebellion, which is an off-shoot of Extinction Rebellion, staged the protest against the dairy industy  The group poured the milk out the cartons one-by-one, and a woman (pictured) can be heard saying, 'why are you doing this? It's disgusting' One account started the conversation saying: 'Am I the only vegan who was seriously disturbed rather than impressed by the...
    The hike in beef prices —⁠ the price of ground beef has soared 10% since last year — is prompting many Americans to instead purchase chicken, even though chicken prices increased by 20.1% in the last quarter of 2021. Tyson CEO Donnie King noted that while "consumer demand for protein remains relatively steady," the company has observed "specific strength" in its chicken segment. He also projected that prices for beef will be on the rise over the next two years. While inflation rose to 9.1% in June, at the same time, food inflation increased by approximately 12.2%. The USDA's food price outlook predicted that in 2022, "foot-at-home prices are predicted to increase between 10.0 and 11.0 percent, and food-away-from-home prices are predicted to increase between 6.5 and 7.5 percent." The report suggested that food inflation would continue to rise in 2023, albeit at a rate between 2% and 3% for food at home and 3% and 4% for food away from home.
    At Equality Vines, a boutique winery in downtown Guerneville, you can swirl, sniff and sip while supporting the rights of women, migrants and the LBGTQ community. Inside the bright, art-strewn tasting room on Main Street, the words “Love Wins” are written in letters so big, they take up an entire wall. The winery’s flagship is a crisp Russian River Valley sparkling blanc de blanc by the same name. It celebrates the landmark Supreme Court marriage equality decision made on June 26, 2015. Guerneville’s Equality Vines makes wines that celebrate civil rights causes, like gay marriage. (Equality Vines)  That’s the year Matt Grove, who co-founded the nation’s first organic beef company, and civil rights activist Jim Obergefell founded Equality Vines and what they call the world’s first cause-driven wine portfolio. The concept is inspired by Grove’s late aunt, Marilyn Schultz, who was an NBC journalist and pioneer in the women’s rights movement. Together with business partner Michael Volpatt, they make about 2,000 cases of six small-batch wines, including a just-released vintage of Love Wins and a Dry Creek Valley rosé, Rosé the...
    During its 10-year run, Dominica Rice-Cisneros’ Old Oakland cafe, Cosecha, was an epicenter for seasonal, California-inspired Mexican food. Some of us living in the East Bay had never tasted a fresh tortilla or known what nixtamalization was before visiting Swan’s Market, which Cisneros helped establish as a dining destination. Without a lunch crowd, Cosecha was forced to shutter in March 2021, one of many downtown casualties of the pandemic. But the acclaimed chef and Chez Panisse vet didn’t miss a beat. Two months later, she unveiled Bombera, a fine dining restaurant housed in an old fire station in the Dimond district, a neighborhood Rice-Cisneros and her husband, Chicano historian Carlos Manuel Salomon, once called home. Located in the Dimond District of Oakland, Bombera, Dominica Rice-Cisnero’s sophomore restaurant, is a celebration of women and Mexican cooking traditions. (Ray Chavez/Bay Area News Group)  With its celebration of women — bombera means female firefighter — and wood-fired cooking, the restaurant was an instant hit. Rice-Cisneros’ niece, designer Nora Yokoubian, transformed the firehouse into a colorful space with warehouse-style windows, leather-backed bar stools and...
    BEING a parent is hard work - especially when it comes to meal times. If you've been working hard to get a decent meal on the table for your kids, it's only natural that you want them to clear their plate. 1Dietician Kate Regan said there are some things parents should never say to children when it comes to foodCredit: SWNS But one expert has revealed you should never ask your child to do this and added you should avoid branding foods 'healthy and unhealthy'. Dietician Kate Regan said eating disorders can be triggered at a young age and well-meaning parents can inadvertently cause kids to develop unhealthy food relationships. The 26-year-old said a lot of eating disorders and disordered eating begin in childhood. It's for this reason she said she would never put her child on a diet.

    Chances are that if you’re health-conscious, fruit-obsessed, or simply have a sweet tooth in search of a quick dessert, you’ve heard about banana soft serve. It’s summertime in the northern hemisphere, so for all we know, you’re eating some right now! At its most basic, banana soft serve is what happens when you take a few perfectly-ripe frozen bananas, throw them in a food processor, and then let the processor run for 3-5 minutes (scraping down the sides a few times for good measure) until your chunks of banana have turned into light, fluffy, smooth, creamy and addictive “ice cream“. Trying banana soft serve for the first time often leads to exclamations of astonishment accompanied by murmurs of delight, with licking of the bowl (not the food processor; those blades are sharp!) not uncommon. Sure, the classic banana soft serve is sweet and refreshing in all its pure glory, but what about those nights when you want something a little more exciting? Try these 5 easy twists on the classic banana soft serve, and you’ll never look at fruit...
    In an attempt to re-home their fostered or adopted kids, people across the country are posting listings on Facebook. These children are already going through one of the most difficult things imaginable, and these posts are dehumanizing and unregulated. One of the posts in the group read, “What is the best way to find a new family when disrupting/dissolving an international adoption (he has been with us for 10 years)? The agencies won’t help us due to a combination of his age, race, medical issues, and behaviors.” When some kids have medical issues or disabilities, foster parents realize they are taking on more than they expected and decide that they no longer want the obligation. Disturbingly, these are literal human beings who are being treated like advertisements. Source: Fox Business/Youtube When foster parents give up their adopted kids at the first sign of trouble, they are subconsciously teaching them that love is conditional and they can be re-abandoned. The health and safety of these children are at risk, and Facebook needs to intervene. Sign this petition to demand...

    A dietitian who specialises in eating disorders has revealed why parents shouldn't make children finish their plates or go on a diet. Kate Regan, 26, from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, said the conditions such as anorexia and bulimia can be triggered at a young age and well-meaning parents can inadvertently cause children to develop unhealthy food relationships. The expert shared the five things she would never do when she becomes a parent - from not dieting herself to never labelling foods 'unhealthy or healthy' or body-shaming anyone. Kate Regan, 26, from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, said the conditions such as anorexia and bulimia can be triggered at a young age and well-meaning parents can inadvertently cause children to develop unhealthy food relationships She said: 'I will not under any circumstances put my child on a diet or tell them that they need to lose weight.  'A lot of eating disorders begin in childhood.

    ROME—In a move that many will consider in good taste, American pizza maker Domino’s is closing the last of its 29 branches in Italy after a dismal appearance on the Italy’s rather hard-to-beat food scene. Twitter applauded the news with one user summing it up: “went all the way to Italy to taste a slice of Domino's #SaidNoOneEver.” Another bid farewell: “Goodbye, please never come back with your atrocious imitations of pizza: we don’t need them, we have the real deal, we invented it!” The Daily Beast predicted this fiasco when the American pie maker first opened, scoffing at the idealism of Alessandro Lazzaroni, who led the charge. “Domino’s is a global brand, with American roots, and we’re proud to be able to introduce it to the Italian people—with a twist,” he said then. “We will be using a recipe created by us, using locally-sourced wheat. Everything else is purely Italian.” While they did use Italian products, their plan to reinvent Italian pizza with their own recipe clearly wasn’t what Italians were looking for—or, it seems—what tourists wanted either....
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — First came the coronavirus pandemic and now high inflation. Food banks are seeing a major increase in need. Philabundance, the area’s largest hunger relief organization, says it’s distributing more food than ever before amid skyrocketing prices. Across the country, charities say there is a rise in the number of people needing help. Inflation has priced people out.

    Farmers harvest a wheat field near Melitopol in Ukraine. Wheat, soybean, sugar, and corn futures have fallen from their March highs back to prices seen at the start of 2022.Olga Maltseva | Afp | Getty Images Food prices dropped significantly in July from the previous month, particularly the costs of wheat and vegetable oil, according to the latest figures from the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization. But the FAO said that while the drop in food prices "from very high levels" is "welcome," there are doubts over whether the good news will last. "Many uncertainties remain, including high fertilizer prices that can impact future production prospects and farmers' livelihoods, a bleak global economic outlook, and currency movements, all of which pose serious strains for global food security," FAO chief economist Maximo Torero said in a press release. The FAO food price index, which tracks the monthly change in the global prices of a basket of food commodities, fell 8.6% in July from the month before. In June, the index fell just 2.3% month on month. However, the index in...
    Just how worried should we be about food additives such as emulsifiers, preservatives, colours and artificial sweeteners? In the past, the additives used in food were essentially pretty simple — think of salt, used to help store food for longer. But these days, pick up any processed food, from biscuits to curry sauce, and the list of chemical additives in it may exceed the ingredients you actually recognise as food. But are they bad for us? Some people are definitely sensitive to certain food additives. One of the most common sensitivities is to sulphites, which are primarily used as a preservative — you find them in foods including dried fruit; jams and dips such as guacamole; processed meats; fresh and frozen crustaceans such as prawns; as well as drinks, including soft drinks, cider, beer, wine and cordials. (Check labels for additive numbers E220-228 and E150b and 150d or names such as sulphur dioxide, sodium sulphite and sulphite ammonia caramel.) Just how worried should we be about food additives such as emulsifiers, preservatives, colours and artificial sweeteners?  People with eczema and...
    Pacific Islanders are no strangers to disasters. For millennia, island peoples have coped with and adapted to disasters like tropical cyclones and tsunamis, as well as unpredictable shifts in precipitation patterns, leading to droughts and floods. A version of this article first appeared on Truthout and was produced in partnership with Earth | Food | Life, a project of the Independent Media Institute. Because most coastal communities across the Pacific region are found on low-lying atolls and narrow coastal margins, they are particularly vulnerable to—and adept at—coping with environmental extremes as a result of their adaptive cultural local practices and knowledge, which have made them more resilient in the face of disasters. These subsistence practices especially helped rural Pacific Island communities cope through the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. While many Pacific Island governments thwarted community transmission of the virus by closing international borders and imposing restrictions on movement, these same measures created hardships through employment losses and supply chain disruptions. In our recent study published in the journal Marine Policy and led by partners within Teri...
    The family’s takeout dinner debate is raging. One wants Thai. Another is thinking sushi. Mediterranean is always appealing. So is Filipino food. And how about spicy fried chicken? Local Kitchens was created to solve that dilemma. This “micro food hall” offers several restaurant concepts in one location but differs from the “ghost kitchen” format in a few key ways. First, customers may order takeout or delivery from all the concepts at one time. Second, many Local Kitchens are situated in retail areas and not industrial districts. And, unlike most ghost kitchens, they typically offer a small amount of seating for customers. The newest in this “mix and match” dining concept has just opened in Campbell’s Hamilton Plaza shopping center, two months after the company branched out to Los Gatos. On the menu in both Campbell and Los Gatos are offerings from eight restaurants: Senor Sisig, The Melt, SAJJ Mediterranean, Sushiritto, Proposition Chicken, Rooster and Rice, The Plant and Humphry Slocombe ice cream. Other Bay Area locations can be found in Cupertino, Lafayette, Mountain View, Palo Alto and San Jose. Restaurant...

    NEXT time you get invited to a dinner party, be on your best behavior by dialing back on the compliments – or at least skipping certain "praise" that experts warn against. According to etiquette pros, certain compliments and questions are actually very rude, so keep them out of your table chatter to avoid committing a faux pas. 1You'll enjoy a dinner party when you avoid 'compliments' that are etiquette faux pasCredit: Getty The advice comes from the experts at EatingWell, who know better than anyone how to effectively navigate dinner party conversation. "When it comes to a personal endeavor, such as cooking, it's especially important to approach commentary in a gentle manner," the experts explained. If you're dining at someone's home, remember that you're being welcomed into their space, to enjoy the result of their labor, and it's rude to overstep. That means you shouldn't ask your host for their coveted family recipe, no matter how delicious it is.

    Ever wondered how bad your favourite foods are for the environment? Well now Oxford-led scientists have provided a little glimpse after creating 'impact scores' for 57,000 food and drink products in the UK and Ireland.   It's bad news for meat eaters as beef and lamb top the list of worst foods for the environment, while energy drinks are among the best.   Nuts and dried fruit, coffee, cheese, fish and seafood, tea, pies, quiches and party food, jams, chocolate and ready meals also have among the worst environmental impacts. Squash and cordial, roast potatoes, onion rings, rice, juices and olives have among the least impact, according to the international research team.   They compared the environmental impacts of meat and meat alternative products, such as plant-based sausages or burgers, and found that many meat alternatives had a fifth to less than a tenth of the environmental impact of meat-based equivalents.  The experts said their research provides a first step towards allowing consumers, retailers, and policymakers to make informed decisions on the environmental impacts of food and drink products. 'By estimating the environmental...
    California’s fast-food workers are paid nearly $3 an hour less — or nearly $6,000 less a year — than workers in comparable service-sector jobs across the state, according to a new report from UC San Francisco and Harvard. The findings from the schools’ Shift Project also show they are more likely to have unpredictable schedules, with most employees working fewer hours than they’d prefer.  The study was not paid for by the fast-food industry but rather based on a survey of employees in the field. Workers, back by union support, have been fighting for higher wages for years. The Service Employees International Union is pushing for the passage of Assembly Bill 257 as part of its ongoing “Fight for $15 and a Union” campaign. The legislation would create a state-run council to negotiate wages, hours and working conditions for the more than 700,000 fast-food employees in California. California’s minimum wage for all businesses is projected to increase to $15.50 an hour on Jan. 1, 2023. But several cities have already surpassed that, including Los Angeles ($16.04), Pasadena ($16.11) and Malibu...

    The American chestnut tree, Castanea dentata, once was prominent in the forests of the Eastern United States, as prevalent if not more than the oak tree. Unfortunately, nearly every single one of them fell victim to an imported pathogen, and in less than half a century, it was functionally extinct. Technically, we can’t call the American chestnut extinct because the pathogen, Cryphonectria parasitica, can’t kill off the tree roots underground, so the roots of these chestnuts remain. They are even known to send up new shoots, but these young trees eventually succumb to the blight as well. Before this tragedy, the chestnut had played a massive role in the American economy by providing construction material, silvopasture (integrated tree and livestock spaces), animal feed, and calorie-rich nuts for people. New chestnut lumber has been sold in the US for decades now, and the chestnuts we get for the holidays are often imported from Turkey or Italy. As we push towards more sustainable lifestyles, it may be time to look at chestnuts again, reimagining how our food systems could look, from...
    A couple prove their love is still blooming 40 years on by recreating a photo they took two years after they first met posing alongside a 12ft sunflower.  Paul Szewc and his wife Sandy, both 61, from Guelph, Ontario in Canada, took the original snap in September 1984 beside a 12ft sunflower which Paul had grown in his mother's garden. However 38 years later, in July 2021 the gardening enthusiasts were delighted when they grew another whopper and recreated the photo. Paul believed flowers were the key to a woman's heart when he wooed his now-wife with a gigantic sunflower when they first got together.    Paul Szewc and his wife Sandy, both 61, from Guelph, Ontario, proved their love is still blooming 40 years on by recreating a photo they took two years after they first met by posing alongside a 12ft sunflower (pictured in September 1984) He invited Sandy to his mother's garden to show her the plant he'd grown from seed - and one particularly impressive flower towered 12ft above them.

    Reducing sugar consumption could help fight climate change and promote sustainability, according to a new study. The study from the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (ICTA-UAB) revealed the potential for climate and sustainability by reducing sugar consumption. The study found that reducing sugar consumption by redirecting land used for sugar to alternative sources could be extremely beneficial for the environment. The study, published in the journal Nature Sustainability, highlights how the adaptation of a sugar tax could help the environment and public health as sugar is one of the worst foods to consume. Source: Hashem Al-Ghaili/Youtube The authors looked at three scenarios of how to redirect existing sugar cropland to alternate uses. The EU reforesting its existing sugar cropland. The EU switching its sugar beet crops to ethanol production. The EU exporting its excess sugar production while Brazil switches its sugarcane crops to ethanol production. The study calculated that emissions could drop 20.9–54.3 MtCO2e per year under the first scenario. They found that these savings would double in the second scenario and...
    January 6th committee hearings reveal that Trump and his cronies somehow raised $250 million to “Stop the Steal,” as Trump claims. Trump intentionally misled his donors, asked them to donate to a fund that didn’t exist, and used the money raised for something other than what he promised. Instead, the money went to the Save America political action committee, which then ended up with several pro-Trump organizations. There is also no doubt that ex-President Trump influenced the Capitol riots, which left Capitol staff and legislators in fear for their lives. This is a serious offense that he needs to be held accountable for. Source: MSNBC/Youtube Donald Trump remains a danger to U.S. democracy.

    THE modern world means we are living a life far removed from that of cavemen - who rose at sunrise and slept at sunset. But now experts have warned that some common everyday habits that most of us a guilty of could be messing up our body clocks, and harming out health. 1The body clock is implicated by sleep, meal times and exerciseCredit: Getty Body clock disruption is thought to contribute to many chronic diseases, from diabetes to dementia. Dr Greg Potter, an expert in sleep, nutrition, metabolism and exercise physiology, told The Sun: “Our ancestors lived in harmony with the environment.  “When the sun was up they would gather food and water, and at night they would rest and fast. “But the problem is since electric lighting was developed in the 19th century, we can now be active throughout the night.

    New York (CNN Business)So, Cracker Barrel ... It's a restaurant you traditionally go to after church to eat an unholy amount of biscuits and gravy while your grandma stocks up country-themed tchotchkes and gingham-printed novelty dish towels embroidered with nonsense like "happiness is homemade." At least that's my memory of it. Point is, it's a wholesome place. But leave it to Facebook commenters to turn it into a battleground of the Great American Culture Wars.Here's the deal: Cracker Barrel added Impossible sausage to its menus. Perhaps because they realized (20 years too late, in my case) that they weren't really providing for the growing number of vegetarians and vegans in America who, like, occasionally are also hungry.

    Two men have been arrested after a string of armed robberies at fast food joints throughout the DMV area, police in Maryland announced. Upper Marlboro residents Zachary Kinnell, 21, and Brian Elzey, 20, were apprehended and charged by police in Montgomery County after an armed robbery at McDonald’s in the 2700 block of University Boulevard West in Kensington. The initial investigation determined that two suspects - later identified as Kinnell and Elzey - entered the drive-thru in a silver Chevrolet Cruze and ordered food on Wednesday, Aug. 3, police said. One of the suspects then allegedly exited the vehicle, approached the cashier's window, displayed a black handgun, and told the cashier to leave.  The suspect then allegedly reached through the window and grabbed an undisclosed amount of money from the cash drawer and fled east on University Boulevard West, police said. Shortly before 1 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 4, officers in Montgomery County spotted a silvery Chevy Cruze with two people inside at the drive-thru of a McDonald’s restaurant in the 12100 block of Veirs Mill Road, which they...
    A customer waits to order food at a McDonalds fast food restaurant on July 26, 2022 in Miami, Florida.Joe Raedle | Getty Images Fast-food chains are playing up the value of their burgers, pizzas and tacos as inflation squeezes budgets — but expect higher prices, skimpier portions and more deals enticing people to sign up for rewards programs as companies rethink their value strategies. Citing rising costs, Domino's Pizza earlier this year raised the price of its Mix & Match delivery deal from $5.99 to $6.99, and made its $7.99 national carry-out offer available only for digital orders. Burger King removed the Whopper from its value menu and trimmed its 10-piece nuggets to eight pieces. For the first time, Yelp said customers are mentioning "shrinkflation" in their restaurant reviews, most commonly at places serving affordable offerings like hot dogs, hamburgers and pizzas. "We've seen companies tweaking their value menus across the board," said Michael Schaefer, the global lead for food and beverage at market researcher Euromonitor International. "We're seeing fewer items total, limited price increases, smaller items." The changes signal...
    PARIS (AP) — French environmentalists are working around the clock to try and feed a dangerously thin Beluga whale that has strayed into the Seine River. So far, they have been unsuccessful. Marine conservation group Sea Shepherd France tweeted Saturday that “our teams took turns with the Beluga all night long. It always ignores the fish offered to him.” The lost Beluga was first seen in France’s river, far from its Arctic habitat, earlier this week. Drone footage subsequently shot by French fire services showed the whale gently meandering in a stretch of the river’s light green waters between Paris and the Normandy city of Rouen, many dozens of kilometers (miles) inland from the sea. Conservationists have tried since Friday to feed a catch of herring to the ethereal white mammal. Calling it “a race against the clock,” Sea Shepherd fears the whale is slowly starving in the waterway and could die. Authorities in the l’Eure region said in a Friday night statement that the wild animal has a “fleeing behavior vis-a-vis the boats” and has not responded to...
    BEIRUT (AP) — A ship bringing corn to Lebanon’s northern port of Tripoli normally would not cause a stir. But it’s getting attention because of where it came from: Ukraine’s Black Sea port of Odesa. The Razoni, loaded with more than 26,000 tons of corn for chicken feed, is emerging from the edges of a Russian war that has threatened food supplies in countries like Lebanon, which has the world’s highest rate of food inflation — a staggering 122% — and depends on the Black Sea region for nearly all of its wheat. The fighting has trapped 20 million tons of grains inside Ukraine, and the Razoni’s departure Monday marked a first major step toward extracting those food supplies and getting them to farms and bakeries to feed millions of impoverished people who are going hungry in Africa, the Middle East and parts of Asia. “Actually seeing the shipment move is a big deal,” said Jonathan Haines, senior analyst at data and analytics firm Gro Intelligence. “This 26,000 tons in the scale of the 20 million tons that are locked...
    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. Food and Agriculture Agency’s global food price index dropped for a fourth straight month in July, but was still 13% higher than in July 2021, the agency reported Friday. FAO said last month’s 8.6% decline was the steepest monthly drop in the value of the index since October 2008. The index hit an all-time high in March, immediately following Russia’s Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine. The overall decline in the July index was led by significant drops in the vegetable oil and cereal indexes and lesser declines in the sugar, dairy and meat indexes, FAO said. The FAO Food Price Index measures the monthly change in international prices of a basket of food commodities. It consists of the average of five commodity groups — cereal, vegetable oil, meat, dairy and sugar. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
