At this point, it is difficult to ascertain the primary causes for the increase in food prices. On the one hand, it could simply be a matter of currency devaluation; the Hungarian national currency has dropped to roughly 355 forints to the euro, down from the roughly 330 forint level it occupied in March. That alone could account for the increases. On the other hand, the price increases could be attributed to supply chain disruptions. Perhaps both factors are at play.
In any event, I am curious to know what the current situation with food prices/availability is in other parts of the world.
Have you noticed any food price increases/food availability issues where you live? If so, what causes do you ascribe to these?
