Food prices in China increased by 10.6 percent from a year earlier in May 2020, easing from a 14.8 percent advance in April. This was the lowest food inflation since August last year, with pork prices rising at a softer rate (81.7 percent vs 96.9 percent in April). Pork prices have been rising during the last year amid a prolonged African swine fever epidemic. Also, cost fell faster for fresh vegetables (-8.5 percent vs -3.7 percent), fresh fruit (-19.3 percent vs -10.5 percent), and eggs (-12.3 percent vs -2.7 percent). Meanwhile, cost continued to rise for both cooking oil (5.3 percent vs 5.6 percent) and dairy products (1 percent vs 0.9 percent).
