In the Minato meat market in Tokyo, this week, wholesale pork prices were up 10 per cent from the previous week's average, according to Nikkei.

This represents a 20 per cent increase from a year ago, when outbreaks of PED began in Japan.

The price rise has reportedly been exacerbated by retailers ahead of the coming three-day weekend for Culture Day.
