Food price inflation is at its highest level in a decade. Years of destocking of major agricultural products around the globe collided with surprisingly strong demand as many nations’ economies recover from COVID-19 and China rebuilds its enormous hog herd. New issues ranging from labor shortages to intense drought could prolong the period of high prices. In this presentation, Gro Intelligence Research Analysts will provide an in-depth look at what led to this high-price environment and which Gro analytics and forecast models will be key to predicting how long it will last.
