From Natcof (National Consumers Forum) in the Seychelles comes the news that according to the Nationial Statistics Bureau, the Consumer Price Index shows that the price of food has seen an increase of more than 19% compared to the same period last year.

Most imported food items like meat, milk and cereals have registered an increase of 27%.

CI has recently released a statement on the food crisis, and other member organisations are also monitoring the issue at national levels and urging their governments to act.
