Food prices have been increasing rapidly, roughly 3 times faster than gross product in the recent years, according to FAO/OECD monitoring specialists. After a slow decrease from 1990 to 2003, food prices inverted the trend and attained a spike in 2008. In 2010 they went up again and reached record levels.
The 2010 food price blaze has been driven mainly by the 20% price increase on sugar, 13% on oils and 11.4% on cereals, from 2003 to 2010. A growing share of these staple foods is currently used for producing ethanol and bio diesel, and new US and EU initiatives contemplate the use of much larger shares to enhance the production of substitute products for oil-derived fuels. The OECD has estimated the impact of this newer demand on the crop prices to entail increases from 6% to 35% depending upon the crops.
