How weather affects food cost

 

Whether or not you’re paying attention to it, weather matters.

While there are several different aspects that can influence food prices, such as low stocks, and unstable commodities markets,  without any doubt, weather is the biggest factor.

The agricultural industry is extremely sensitive in changes in climate and extreme weather.

An unexpected rainfall or unseasonably cold weather is not just inconvenient in our personal lives. It also influences the quantity of the food produced. In fact, it corresponds to declining rates of yield growth for some commodity products as well as increasing costs to maintain healthy crops. But also, it influences the products’ quality, as altered weather patterns lead to a less desirable harvest.

While modern technology and techniques can help farmers and vendors to promptly respond to these changes and adapt, reducing their vulnerability and maintaining a high-level production, not every farmer has the equipment necessary to counter-interact that change.

The bright side is that climate change won’t only challenge regional food production but also serve as a way to stimulate its growth. Also, climate change will shift regional advantages all around the world, and make some forms of local production more competitive. By diversifying farming, there will be an increase our resilience to adapt to what climate change brings.

However, let’s face it: high and volatile food prices are not likely to decline. With the agriculture having to continuously adapt to dramatically changing climate, prices might actually increase up to 1% next year. And when there is a rise in retail food cost in normally means that farm and wholesale prices will rise as well.
