Explanation:
Literally >>The office of statistics also [furthermore] stated that the principal effect was due to falling food prices [prices for food products].<< --- Depending on what that effect was (e.g., an overall drop in the cost of living vs. something more specific) it might be better to transpose to "... that this effect was mainly due to falling food prices."
---
In the US, the industry is generally referred to as the "food (and beverage) industry", with diverse subdivisions.
