Reading Time: < 1 minute

Many analysts say the era of cheap food may well be over as rising crop production struggles to keep pace with soaring global demand. But experts do not expect a repeat of the late-year grain market rallies of 2010 which ignited record food inflation that stirred popular unrest in the Middle East and North Africa. – Reuters
