Food costs around the world have risen to a 10-year high, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). In October, the price of vegetable oil increased by 10% and the price of cereal went up 22%. Supply issues have helped push up prices. Worker shortages and shipping delays are also contributing to the rise of production and transportation costs of food in other parts of the world. “The other problem is getting the product out. For example, here in Australia, we’ve had a lot of ships arrive to take the food away, but we can’t get a crew to come in because of Covid.” said Peter Batt, an agribusiness expert at Curtin Business School. The cost of dairy products rose almost 16% over the last year. Brigit Busicchia from Macquarie University noted that rising food prices usually affect the poor, and this could result in social and political issues.
