    The outbreak of African swine fever has helped lift food prices

    The outbreak of African swine fever has helped lift food prices

    12 September 2019
    The cost of meat and veg pushed overall food costs up 0.7-percent in the past month.

    Tomatoes have gone up almost 50-percent, and bacon increased 11-percent to a new record high, because of the worldwide shortage of pork.

    Beef mince also reached a record high on the back of increased demand from China.

    Food's risen 2.1-percent in the past year, with meat, poultry and fish going up eight-percent.
