  • The world food prices hit a record high in February due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
  • Both Ukraine and Russia are considered as the breadbasket of Europe as they are one of the largest exporters of agricultural products.

The world may be facing significant consequences of the crisis between Russia and Ukraine as it will further add to the cost of living along with rising energy and food prices. On Saturday, IMF said that the current crisis and the subsequent sanctions on Russia can have a long-lasting impact on the global economy with no respite any soon.

The world food prices hit a record high in February, as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continued to disrupt global crop trading, which is expected to further push food prices. The rise in food prices was driven by vegetable oil and dairy products to post a 20.7% increase year-on-year, the UN food agency Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said on Friday.

The FAO’s food price index that tracks the international prices of most globally traded food commodities, rose by around 4% to 140.7 points last month against a downwardly revised 135.4 in January 2022. The rising food prices are further adding to already rising inflation as economies are recovering from the pandemic and the FAO has warned that the surging prices may put poorer countries at risk and affect the global supply chain.

Both Ukraine and Russia are crucial exporters of agricultural products and together, they account for around 30% of the world’s wheat supplies, besides exporting half of the world’s sunflower products.

Wheat futures in Chicago rose by 7% for the sixth straight session to US$12.94 per bushel, which significantly increased by 41% since last week. Wheat prices are at its record high since the global food crisis in 2008 and experts believe that it would further increase.

Russia is also the world’s largest exporter of fertilizers and accounts for 23% of the world’s ammonia export market, 21% for potash, 14% of urea, and 10% of processed phosphates. The escalating conflict and dependence on Russia for fertilizer may have serious knock-on effects on the global farmers and the border food system.
