Agriculutual Market Information System (AMIS) Market Monitor November 2022

Concerns are mounting regarding the extension of the United Nations Black Sea Grain Initiative beyond the 18 November deadline, especially after Russia's recent - albeit temporary - withdrawal from the agreement. Through this initiative, Ukraine has been able to ship over 9 million tonnes of grains and oilseeds via its Black Sea ports. While the volume of exports remains below year-ago levels, importers benefitted from larger supplies, especially those who depend on Ukraine's agricultural products, while consumers worldwide have gained through lower market prices. Unfortunately, the pace of exports slowed in recent weeks as inspections could not keep up with the number of shipments; and now the possible termination of the deal threatens to re-ignite market prices and further exacerbate global food security concerns.

Agriculutual Market Information System (AMIS) Market Monitor October 2022

Since peaking earlier this year, international food prices have returned to levels last seen prior to the Ukraine war. However, prices of most foodstuffs remain high and continue to be under upward pressure from a range of factors, including low stock-to-use ratios for some commodities, high energy and fertilizer costs, poor weather in several key producing countries, and risks associated to the unresolved conflict in Ukraine. With a majority of countries experiencing food price increases between 10 and 30 percent over the previous year, domestic food price inflation is particularly worrisome, especially for the poor who spend a higher share of their disposable income on food.
