Pork prices rose across the board

We all know that at the beginning of this year, Australia experienced a price hike caused by drought.

First, the prices of fruits and vegetables soared by 50%

At that time, the price of some broccoli had soared from 5 Australian dollars per kilogram to 10 Australian dollars.

Snow peas increased from $7-$10/kg to $18/kg
At that time, some friends joked, Australians can no longer eat vegetables, they can only eat meat all the time...
However, the face slap came too fast—

Immediately afterwards, beef and mutton also rose,

2 kg of beef, Coles sells for 52 Australian dollars, Woolworths for 56 Australian dollars, but in some butchers alreadyIt has risen to 70 Australian dollars.

For 2.5 kilograms of lamb leg, Coles and Woolworths sell for 34 Australian dollars, but some butchers have alreadyIt has risen to 50 Australian dollars.

The price of pork is of course also affected by the drought, but the impact is slightly smaller, with prices rising between 10%-15%.

Many people who can't afford beef and mutton can choose pork instead.

This time, the swine fever struck, making pork production completely in trouble.

It is expected that the price of pork products will soar in the coming months.

Australians love sausage and bacon, but they will soon be unable to eat them.

And the Chinese favorite roast suckling pig, pig's feet in sauce, pork bone soup, braised pork, sweet and sour pork ribs, pork stewed vermicelli, braised lion's head...

Eat more when you can afford it...

Soon, Australia will have a hard-to-find scene.
