Global Food Commodity Price Volatility Here to Stay

ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - November 4, 2009) - has announced the addition of just-food's new report "Global Food Commodity Price Volatility Here To Stay - Management Briefing," to their collection of Food market reports. For more information, visit

Food commodity prices are seldom out of the news, due to a mushrooming global population, the food-for-fuel controversy, an increasing focus on sustainability and the continued growth of the organic sector. However, beyond the generality of crop prices spiraling to new highs in 2007 and 2008 and then plummeting -- in some cases -- back to where they were before the boom, the picture is far from uniform. This month's briefing looks at recent trends, projects, likely developments over the next few years and analyses what they mean for the global food-manufacturing sector.

Topics covered in the report include...
The age of food commodity price volatility
The European experience
The US story
Global commodity trends
Consumer prices - a tale of two markets
The productivity gap and the demographic challenge
Opportunities in sourcing
Opportunities for exporters
Back to the future
