Market Watch 67

In July 2014, retail prices of most food commodities monitored in 12 markets across Nepal showed an upward trend due to the lean season and the monsoon period.   

Overall inflation rate in July 2014 was 8.1 percent. The food and beverage group was higher at 11.1 percent, as were several sub-groups: fruits (25.5 percent), vegetables (21.2 percent), meat and fish (15.9 percent), and milk and dairy products (10.9 percent). 

According to NeKSAP cluster and district coordinators the normal supply of food across some parts of Nepal has been disrupted, mainly in the Mid-Western and Eastern regions and the Central Terai, due to landslides in the hills and floods in the Terai caused by heavy rainfall. This situation should be monitored closely.


Most food prices are likely to remain high or increase in the next month due to a decline in supply as a result of road obstructions in many parts of the country and the lean season.
