Abstract
South Africa faces a crisis of rising food prices and food insecurity. The food price index rose 16.7 per cent in the year to June 2002 as compared to non-food inflation of 7.2 percent (Stats SA, 2002b). The price of maize meal doubled in the year to June 2002 and may escalate to even higher levels in the next few months.
