To Market To Market – To Pay A Lot More

We see it every time we head to the checkout line: food prices are eating up more of our budgets than ever before. The USDA notes that in December 2012, it cost $248 a week to feed a family of four. That’s a 41% jump over the past 10 years.[1] And it’s not just a US phenomenon. In 2012, global food prices rose 2.7%. The World Bank global food price index increased 104.5% between 2000 and 2012, at an average annual rate of 6.5%.[2] Population growth, biofuel production, supply shocks due to extreme weather, and other factors will continue to put upward pressure on our grocery bills. And that could fill up the carts of companies that feed the world. See more
