Food Prices May Remain Elevated as Population Grows, Dawe Says
Food prices may remain elevated in coming years as global populations increase and demand rises in emerging markets, said David Dawe, a senior economist at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
“There’s going to be a lot of pressure on food prices in coming years,” Dawe said in New York during a Bloomberg Television interview on Surveillance Midday with Tom Keene. “We expect food prices to be higher as natural resources become scarcer in some areas, and as demand continues to grow.”
