In order to make appropriate policy decisions, we need to understand the causes of the current price spike, the implications for prices and price volatility in the future, and the impact of food price inflation on households. This policy paper intends to enhance understanding of food price inflation by reviewing the price trends of selected food commodities, examining underlying causes of food price rises as well as discussing policy options for the government’s consideration.
