Domestic food prices are trending upwards after months of relative stability. In particular, tomatoes (50kg) have jumped by over 70% to N13,000 and a 50kg bag of rice is up 21% to N17,000. The uptick could be linked to seasonal factors such as the commencement of both the planting season and Ramadan fast.

These developments will have an impact on food inflation.
