The Chicago Trib has an article which basically points out that food corporations like Kraft, Nestle, Unilever and Kellogg's gambled and made really dumb decisions on futures prices, and now consumers have to pay higher prices for foods despite dramatic drops in commodities prices in the last 12 months.
