Relief to burning high prices, edible prices may come down

India imports about 55% of its annual edible oil consumption

Households may see some reprieve as cooking oil prices are set to ease with Indonesia lifting it's export ban. Indonesia, the world’s biggest shipper of edible oils, had imposed a ban on exports of palm oil on April 28. Palm oil is used in everything from food to soap to fuel.

The Indonesian govt lifted the the ban after hundreds of farmers rallied to protest the move, saying their incomes have suffered because prices of their fresh fruit bunches plunged.
