Major Global Food Crisis Ahead

BBC – The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) is holding an extraordinary meeting in Rome sparked by global fears about high food prices. Are you concerned?

The meeting will include Russian grain executives. Moscow banned exports after its harvest was hit by drought.

Flooding in Pakistan and China has added to pressure on the market.

Price rises have already sparked riots in Mozambique and are prompting fears of a repeat of the massive price spike of 2007-8.

Global grain prices remain at a two-year high and are still rising.

Have you noticed the cost of food rising where you are? Should there be more regulation of food markets? Should countries maintain emergency food stocks?
