Overview

Global food prices have risen by 83 per cent over the last three years, triggering riots in more than 30 countries, high level political attention and unease about the longer term outlook. The speakers will give an insight into what has been driving rising prices, whether the current situation is a blip or a 'new normality', and look at possible future scenarios both in the UK and internationally.
