Description: Grocery food prices are generally thought to be determined by three factors: prices farmers receive for their commodities, marketing costs incurred in changing these commodities into foods and delivering them to consumers, and consumer demand for food. Farm prices and marketing charges determine how much it costs to produce and market food, and consumer demand determines what consumers are willing to pay.

Summary: Published from 1991-2002, this magazine contains nontechnical, general interest articles and historical data on food supply, food demand, food prices, and food spending. The articles report on ERS analyses and insights on a wide variety of topics related to the U.S. food marketing system, including food consumption, food product development, international food trade, food safety, and food-related policies and programs.
