Rice could be next Global food prices are soaring

Food prices have been on the rise in the past few months. And rice, a staple food in much of Asia, could be next, industry watchers said.

The prices of many foods, ranging from wheat and other grains to meat and oils, have shot up

Food export bans or serious disruptions have included those from India (wheat), Ukraine (wheat, oats and sugar, among others) and Indonesia (palm oil).

Rice could be next in line.

Risk of protectionism
Protectionist measures “actually worsen price pressures at a global level for various reasons,” she told CNBC’s “Street Signs Asia.” Feed and fertilizer costs for farming are already rising, and energy prices are adding to freight costs, she added.

“So there is a risk that we see more protectionism from countries,” said Varma.

Thailand and Vietnam were in talks on a deal to increase the price of their rice exports, according to a Reuters report citing a Thai government official in late May.

“Right now, I will be much more worried by India slapping an export ban on rice in the coming weeks — as they were thinking about after wheat and sugar,” David Laborde, senior research fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute, told CNBC.

Are price hikes preferable?
Laborde said that a price increase would be far preferable to any export ban.

Nafees Meah, regional representative for South Asia at the International Rice Research Institute, added that energy costs, which have been rising globally, are a big part of rice production costs.

Many warning signs that food prices could keep surging in Asia: Economist Nafees told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Asia.”

So in in the Southeast Asia Pacific region, countries like East Timor, Laos, Cambodia and of course, places like Indonesia, which [has a] very large population, and many of whom are food insecure will be pretty badly affected if prices continue to rise and stay at these very high levels,” said Nafees.

Way above pre-pandemic levels
The U.N.’s food price index showed prices are now 75% above pre-pandemic levels, said Frederique Carrier, managing director and head of investment strategy for RBC Wealth Management.

Why It’s 16th: In 2015, I called 1943’s Batman serial — the first Dark Knight to ever appear on movie screens — “[possibly] the worst Batman anything in any medium period.” In 2022, I am sticking to that assessment In the history of the character, it is important. As a work of entertainment, it is long, boring, and often shockingly racist. If you think the George Clooney Batman is bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
