Food prices in China increased by 6.1 percent year-on-year in August 2022, slowing from a 6.3 percent rise a month earlier which was the fastest pace in 22 months, due to fresh COVID-19 restrictions in some cities to curb rising infections and adverse weather due to heatwaves. Still, the latest figure pointed to the fifth straight month of rising cost of food, amid a slowdown in prices of fresh fruit (16.3 percent vs 16.9 percent in July), fresh vegetables (6.0 percent vs 12.9 percent), eggs (1.7 percent vs 5.9 percent), and milk (0.8 percent vs 0.9 percent). Meantime, cost of cooking oils rose faster (7.5 percent vs 6.8 percent) as did that of pork (22.4 percent vs 20.2 percent), which reflects the impact of the recent cut in production capacity. source: National Bureau of Statistics of China
