Venezuela's standard food basket stood at USD 452.57 in November, soaring 2.69% with respect to October (USD 450.46). 

Based on a report compiled by the National Statistics Institute, the new price is attributable to the rise in the price of eggs (up 35.63%), tomatoes (up 23.77%), domestic oranges (up 12.41%), mangos (up 10.08%), plantains (up 8.02%), pineapples (up 5.62%), mayonnaise (up 5.24%), onions (up 4.91%), and chicken (up 4.62%). 

Regarding the drop in the price of some staples, the most significant were those in yucca, vegetable oil, kidney beans, black beans, potato, and oats and its by-products.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
