Opinion article by Elisabete Pinto, professor at the Faculty of Biotechnology and researcher at the Centre for Biotechnology and Fine Chemistry.

The increase in food prices is a reality felt by everyone whenever we go shopping. This increase has been explained by a number of factors, including production costs, scarcity of raw materials, interruptions in supply chains and imbalances in supply and demand.

Controlling food price inflation therefore requires a multisectoral approach, including investments in agriculture, increasing efficiency in supply chains, developing innovative technologies and creating government policies that can help stabilize prices and ensure food security for all.
