Nutritious and Affordable Food Basket (NAFB)
In 2020-2021, the methodology used was revised to better represent the fluctuation of basic food prices and the impact of inflation on the annual cost of a food basket. This update resulted in the creation of the Nutritious and Affordable Food Basket (NAFB) and a brand-new web application.
