Raw food costs jump 7.12 per cent in July while petrol prices decline: inflation report
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) increased 0.98 per cent year over year in July, rising from the 0.87 per cent in June. An increase in the indexes for raw food, which jumped by 7.12 per cent in July, continues to be a primary factor behind CPI increases, led by price rises in vegetables and fruits, pork, milled rice and milled glutinous rice, according to a July inflation report summary from Thailand’s Trade Policy and Strategy Office on Thursday.
