Earlier this year, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) revealed that its FAO Food Price Index had hit its highest level since its inception in 1990, reflecting new all-time highs for vegetable oils, cereals and meat sub-indices.

As a result, the innovation and technology required to safely produce and distribute the food we need will impact global investors across asset classes, providing opportunities as well as challenges for the portfolio.
