Global consumer prices feel impacts of tightening rice supplies, shifts in global beef supplies

The Food Retail and Manufacturing team within Food and Agricultural Commodities at SP Global Commodity Insights discusses the latest food price inflation trends in April across global markets. In April, food inflation continues to slow in the US and Europe, but weather in Brazil, India, and Southeast Asia is creating volatility in consumer prices for fruits and vegetables, as well as rice. April also sees mixed movements around the world on beef prices, as the US continues to see high prices due to tightness in the domestic cattle herd, while a surge in South American harvest levels has brought down beef prices in Brazil and mainland China, which continues to see record beef demand despite ongoing economic challenges in the country.

Field to fork: US grilling season and Brazil’s role in beef trade (part 1)

Grilling season is underway in the US – the world's largest producer and consumer of beef. Even so, per capita consumption of beef in the US has halved over the last 50 years. The US can now produce more beef with fewer head of cattle, but it has become reliant on imported beef. And Brazil has a herd of some 235 million head and now supplies the world. In this first installment of a two-part series focusing on global beef and poultry markets, EMEA agriculture and food manager William Bland speaks with Americas agriculture managers John-Laurent Tronche and Rafael Savoia about these changing dynamics.Links:Press Release: SP Global Commodity Insights Launches New Platts Price Assessments for Poultry, Beef Proteins Price Assessments: SP Global Commodity Insights LiveMore listening options:
