Inflation: What's happening in relation to food prices?

Prof. Michael Wallace, UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science.

The Taoiseach has previously said the Government was planning on the basis that such costs will be here "for the medium term", and that inflation was being driven by external, global factors.

How are these factors affecting what people will pay for everyday food? Are we seeing the worst of it now, or can we expect further rises down the line?
