Javier Blas, a commodities editor for the Financial Times, has won the 2011 FAO A.H. Boerma Award. The prize is awarded to journalists around the world who raise awareness of the fight against hunger in the world. His reporting since 2007 has frequently addressed issues of core concern to FAO, such as hunger and food security, the impact of food prices in developing countries, the role of speculation and bioenergy production in the food price matrix, and overseas investment in agricultural land.
