JAKARTA, KOMPAS — As the increase in global food prices is beginning to affect the prices of a number of national food commodities, the government needs to take anticipatory measures by strengthening the food stock at least for the next year and by stabilizing prices so that consumer purchasing power is not eroded.

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have warned of rising global food prices, especially for vegetable oils, meat, sugar and cereals.
