The United Nations food agency's world price index declined again in July, edging further away from all-time highs hit in March.

The Food and Agriculture Organization's (FAO) index, which tracks the most globally traded food commodities, averaged 140.9 points last month versus a revised 154.3 for June, reports Reuters.

The June figure was previously put at 154.2.
