Pork hit the wallets of the Chinese

Pork prices in China jumped 69.3% in September from a year ago as the country continues to tackle meat shortages that follow the African plague outbreak.

The rise in pork prices was the main driver of the overall rise in consumer prices in China. In September, the index rose 3% year-on-year, the highest in nearly six years.. Meanwhile, factory prices, measured by the Producer Price Index, fell 1.2%.

According to economists’ expectations, consumer prices in China will rise by 2.9% in September, while producer prices will drop by 1.2%.

Pork hit the wallets of the Chinese

China is the world’s largest pork producer and consumer. Since meat is a staple in the Chinese diet, the spike in prices over the past year has hurt the wallets of many in the country..

The Chinese authorities have named increasing the supply of pork in the country as a major political challenge. Within this the consolidation of pig farms was undertaken, as well as the release of pork from its strategic reserves.

According to experts, about half of the country’s pig population died as a result of a prolonged outbreak of swine fever that was discovered more than a year ago.. The total number of these animals in the country may be halved by the end of 2019.

«High pork prices are now driving up the prices of some low-quality consumer goods. Pig production has its own cycle and will not increase overnight. So the consequences of the epidemic will continue to put pressure on the markets», – says Wang Zheng, chief investment officer of Jingxi Investment Management.
