    FAO Food Price Index dipped in October pushed by dairy, meat and vegetable oils

    The Dairy Price Index led the overall decline, slipping 4.8% from the previous month and 34% below the peak reached in February 2014

    International food commodity prices dipped in October, as falling dairy, meat and vegetable oils prices more than offset a surge in sugar prices, the United Nations said. The FAO Food Price Index, a measure of the monthly change in international prices of a basket of food commodities, averaged 163.5 points in October, down 0.9 percent from September and 7.4 percent below its level a year earlier.
