Eggs laid by hens temporarily housed in barns for their welfare ...

As part of preventing Avian Flu from spreading in the UK farmed bird population, the Government has put in place legislation instructing all egg and poultry farmers in the UK to move all birds indoors on a temporary basis. This means that from 1 March, very few eggs produced in the UK will be classed as free range, and free range eggs will start to be re-labelled as "Eggs laid by hens temporarily housed in barns for their welfare". Customers are advised to put up signage or a note on menu's with a message similar to retail outlets. (April, 2017)

Salmon retail prices set to leap owing to infestations of

sea lice ...

The wholesale cost of salmon rose 50% in 2016 as fish farmers from Scotland to Norway and Chile tried to tackle a sea lice parasite problem. The tiny parasites feed on the blood and tissue of salmon. The problem followed a supply shortage caused by a deadly algae bloom in Chile, the world's second biggest producer of farmed salmon (after Norway). One major international producer, Marine Harvest, said the volume of salmon it produced in Scotland had slumped by 16%, or 1,500 tonnes in the summer, partly because it accidentally killed 175,000 fish while trying to treat them for lice using a device called a themolicer...

Cheese & Butter shortages now a reality ...

Fears of a cheese and butter shortage as a result of tightening milk supplies appear to have materialised, suppliers have warned. High wholesale prices for butter rose by another 6% from September to October due to low supplies. Another dairy source suggested that wholesalers supplying cheese to Schools in the South West were already experiencing shortages. (November, 2016)

UK Food Prices set to rise after Brexit vote ...

Food prices are likely to increase as a short-term consequence of Britain's vote to leave the EU, owing to the UK's dependence on imports, according to the President of the National Farmers' Union. Mr Raymond warned that one of the most immediate impacts would be from the combination of the UK's reliance on food imports and the pound hitting a 31-year low immediately following the referendum result on 24th July. The UK only produces 60% of the food it consumes, making it very dependent on imported food. In conjunction, a weaker pound will mean higher imported food values. (June, 2016)

El Nino Supports Cocoa Price ...

Cocoa, chocolate products. Cocoa prices may increase due to concerns about drier than normal conditions in west Africa, the key producing region. The Cocoa benchmark is firming despite an easing of other leading commodity prices. The benchmark is up by more than 17 percent from the beginning of 2015, and higher by more than two-thirds since the beginning of 2014. El Nino has been behind the market's rise, with the weather phenomenon traditionally tending to bring dry weather to west Africa and Indonesia, a leading producer in Asia. (Dec 2015)

El Nino Threatens Fishmeal Prices ...

Fish, fish oil and fishmeal. Fish prices could strengthen over the next year as the El Nino weather phenomenon warms the currents around Peru (the world's largest exporter) reducing the margins of seafood companies. Peruvian anchovy landings are expected to be negatively affected during the latter half of 2015 and the first half of 2016. Anchovies are the main source of fishmeal and fish oil, which are crucial components in the feed for farmed fish and seafood such as shrimp, prawns and salmon. A rise in fishmeal and feed prices will impact the margins of the aquaculture or farmed fish sector. (Nov 2015)

El Nino Phenomenon Impacts Food Prices ...

Sugar, vegetable oils, dairy and soya oil. The El Nino weather phenomenon has started to impact upon food prices as droughts in South-East Asia and rains in Brazil are affecting crops including sugar and palm oil. According to the FAO, food prices in October showed their largest month-on-month rise in 3 years, up almost 4 percent from September. Price increases in sugar, vegetable oils and dairy were noted, although the FAO Food Price Index was still 16 percent lower on a year-on-year basis. (Oct, 2015)

Dairy Drags Food Prices Towards Six-Year Low ...

In July the UN Food and Agriculture Organization found that its food price index had fallen almost 20 percent year-on-year. Dairy prices have fallen 35 percent from a year earlier, impacted by lower import demand from China, the Middle East and north Africa. Prices for milk powders were the most affected, followed by cheese and butter. Further, vegetable oil has fallen to its cheapest since July, 2009, dragged down by palm and soyabean oil markets. Sugar has fallen 40 percent year-on-year due to overproduction. (Aug 2015)

UN's food price index drops ...

In December 2014 the UN Food and Agriculture Organization found that its food price index had fallen 3.7 percent from 2013. This is the third consecutive yearly fall for the Food Price Index. Meat products were the only food group within the Index to increase during 2014, rising 9.9 percent in December, 2014 from the same month in 2013. Further, arctic conditions in the US has threatened the development of wheat, as has uncertainly about weather in Russia.  Further, political instability has led to volatile prices in certain commodities.

Rising price of cold-water prawns ...

  Prawns. Key suppliers have warned of an imminent global shortage of cold-water prawns, caused by declining fishing quotas combined with rising demand. The shortage has been exacerbated by reduced availability of Thailand warm-water prawns due to early mortality syndrome, resulting in a 25% loss in the world export market. A long cold winter in Canada and Greenland has meant that thick ice has prevented trawlers being able to fish. (16/12/2014)

Hot Chocolate Demand Sends Cocoa Price Soaring ...

  Cocoa and chocolate. The price of cocoa, the key ingredient in chocolate, has soared more than 20 percent since January. Dry weather in west Africa and recovering demand in the US and Europe, have transformed demand and supply. Prices have risen to their highest level in two years. (15/10/2014)

Grain Stocks Set to be Highest Since 2003 ...

  Wheat, feed grains and rice. Stocks of wheat, feed grains and rice will rise to 24.7 percent of annual consumption next year, according to the FAO. This is the highest stock level since 2003. Grain prices have been on a downward trend since 2012, when droughts in Brazil and the US cut harvests. Falling crop prices will redistribute profits from grain farmers to food processors. The livestock and dairy industries will also benefit from cheaper feed. The FAO said the price of dairy products in August declined almost 20 percent from a year ago, pushed down in part by Russian food and agricultural import sanctions. (11/09/2014)

Rising Prices for Cocoa, Dairy & Nuts ...

Cocoa, Dairy & Nuts. Commodity spot prices for ingredients such as cocoa, dairy and nuts have increased meaningfully since the beginning of 2014, and are expected to increase during 2015. Wholesale prices are likely to increase by approximately 8 percent. Key drivers are rising demand in emerging markets and a recovery in consumption in Europe and the US, together with concerns about dry weather in west Africa. Chocolate prices in New York are almost 40 percent higher than 12 months ago, with cocoa butter up nearly 70 percent. (17/07/2014)

Farmed Fish Production to Increase Relative to Wild ...

Fish. There has been a sharp shift towards farmed fish due to strong demand for seafood. In particular, consumption across the developing world is increasing. The rise in aquaculture could mean fewer fluctuations in fish prices. However, there is continued upward pressure on feed prices, constraints on water supplies, and a rise in disease affecting farmed fish. (09/06/2014)
