Pork shortfall in China due to swine flu jacks global prices up

African swine flu has wiped out half of China’s pig herds, and in the run-up to Chinese New Year, its officials have embarked on a worldwide shopping spree for the country’s preferred meat.

That has pushed pork prices up across the world.
