World food prices are likely to remain high for the rest of the year and into 2012 according to a biannual report published by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The "Food Outlook" report says dwindling stocks, as well as small production increases for the majority of crops, means that prices will remain at what's been described, as "stubbornly high levels".

It adds the high prices pose a threat to many low-income food deficit countries, that may not be able to afford to buy food stuffs.
