China is starting to eat into its emergency reserves of pork

China's pork crisis has gotten so bad that some of its cities are starting to tap into their precious strategic reserves of frozen pig meat.

At least four cities or provinces that are home to roughly 130 million people have begun drawing down stocks to flood the market with frozen pork in an attempt to stabilize prices and boost supply. Pork consumption is vital to Chinese culture, and availability is important this weekend when China celebrates its second biggest holiday of the year.

The release of local reserves is the latest example of how China is trying to deal with the crisis — but even that might not be enough to solve the problem, experts say. The world's largest pork market has been ravaged by an outbreak of African swine fever, and it's lost more than 100 million pigs in the last year, either because of disease or because farmers don't want to restock pigs after they die. The decline in pig supply has driven pork prices up nearly 50% in the last year.

Hey, Gregg:

You're a little too late!

China bought USA based Smithfield Hams back a few years ago.

In Smithfield, Virginia, Smithfield Foods is everywhere. The $14 billion global meat-processing company—the world’s largest hog farmer and pork producer and maker of the uniquely aged and smoked Smithfield ham—is the biggest employer in the town of about 8,000 people. On Main Street, the 80-year-old company operates a retail store,

Three years ago, when Smithfield Foods announced that it was planning to be purchased by China’s leading pork producer, Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd. (now called WH Group Ltd.), Darden was anxious. Would she still get her regular supply of ham? Would it be the same product she’d always known?

China has been buying up American food companies and farms and now owns up to at least 2% of our farms. It may even be higher now.

Enjoy your pork while you still can!

Schezhuwan pork, pork fried rice, pork lo mein, pork steamed buns, Hunan pork, twice cooked pork, pork shreds and cellophane noodles, sweet and sour pork,  kung pao pork, pork chow mein, pork satay, moo-shu pork, salted pork chops,...and, yes, roast pork.

They can have the Republican pig in the White House and the Republican pigs in the US Senate.

How about that?

Deal?
  

What is the cost of lies? It's not that we'll mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all. What can we do then? What else is left but to abandon the hope of truth and content ourselves instead with stories. In these stories it doesn't matter who the heroes are. All we want to know is who is to blame. - V.
