Expect food prices to rise rapidly over the next few months


3 days ago

Expect rising food price inflation in the coming months, says John van Tubbergh (Sector Head for Consumer, Food and Agri at RMB).

Producer prices are rapidly increasing, and these ultimately lead to higher consumer prices.

Producer price inflation for agricultural products rose by 12.3% year-on-year in November 2020 before falling to 7.2% in March 2021.

Consumer food price inflation was 5.2% in February 2021.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Van Tubbergh.

Food producers are absorbing some of the cost increases… We are being shielded…

We’re having record crops, but the price is driven by demand from China…
