The FAO Food Price Index, which measures monthly price changes for a basket of cereals, oilseeds, dairy, meat and sugar, averaged 211 points in November, down 3 points from October, the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) said.
The decline puts the November index value nearly 3 percent below one year ago, FAO said.
The Rome-based agency trimmed its forecast for global cereal production in 2012, estimating a 2.8 percent decline from the previous year to 2.282 billion tonnes.
