SINGAPORE - With the ban on Malaysian poultry still in place, Singaporeans have been turning to pork as an alternative to poultry.

The rise in demand has led to a hike in the price of fresh pork from Indonesia.

Pork sellers say prices have gone up by 20 percent, an increase even higher than seen during the peak Chinese New Year period.

A rise of $2 to $3 per kilo of pork can be expected.

Singapore receives a supply of about 2,000 pigs a day. Nearly half of the bulk comes from Indonesia.

The rest of the supply is imported from Australia and Europe.
