Rising Food Prices Around the World - 10 Oct 2012
A rice vendor reaches out for an Indonesian rupiah note at a market in Jakarta January 13, 2011. Global food prices hit a record last month, outstripping levels that prompted riots in 2008, and key grains could climb even further as weather patterns give cause for concern, the United Nations food agency said. The Indonesian government has already decided to import 1.3 million tonnes of rice from Thailand and Vietnam ahead of the local harvest in February, after not importing it in the past two years.
