The impact of intermediate input price changes on food prices: an analysis of from-the-ground-up effects

The impact of intermediate input price changes on food prices: an analysis of from-the-ground-up effects

Journal of Agribusiness 20(1): 85-102

The impact of intermediate input price increases on food prices in the USA is analysed assuming the producers can pass through increased production costs to final consumers. Five scenarios of input price increases are empirically examined. Findings indicate that the meat processing sector has a strong dependence on intermediate inputs (livestock), and an increase in livestock prices would have a greater impact on processed meat prices than would any other intermediate input price increases.
