WASHINGTON: Global food costs have revitalized to multi-year highs, set off by Covid-19 pandemic-related store network interruptions and taking off transport costs, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has said. 

More is probably going to come since global food costs are required to increment by around 25% in 2021 from 2020, composed IMF's Christian Bogmans, Andrea Pescatori and Ervin Prifti in another blog. They are required to balance out not long from now.
