High food prices have lead to violent riots in Mozambique, where seven people have been killed. Food and water costs have also risen. And food security is a world-wide problem, with wheat and meat prices rising globally. BBC business reporter, Tim Jenkins, says he's noticed this trend for a few years and explains a new U.N. Food and Agriculture survey, which shows that beef prices, poultry prices, and lamb prices have all reached new hights.
The issues are dependent on weather, changing in taste and popularity of foods across the globe as more cultures turn to bread and meat and away from traditional foods, and the increasing population growth.
