International bodies have warned that in the coming decade, food will be available globally but expensive.

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) together with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) warn that although more food will be produced, access to it may be a challenge due to poor purchasing power especially in African countries.

A report released in Geneva on Monday indicates that food prices will remain affordable for middle class incomes which will spend more on processed food thus creating a high demand for sugar, oils and fats and animal proteins.
