The main factors behind the jump in food costs were strong commodities prices globally, booming consumer demand at home and smaller-than-expected crop harvests because of bad weather.

Argentina's economy will grow at one of the world's fastest clips this year at around 9 percent, thanks partly to booming retail sales. The downside is annual inflation estimated privately at between 25 percent and 30 percent. Although wage hikes have helped offset the impact of rising costs, inflation is spawning changes to consumer spending.
