Food inflation, local trend or worldwide?

Interesting, they choose this cheese!

In Estonia now, they sell bear in can. (Like Japan!), so WEF still a long way from preventing Chicken sales.


It’s kind of weird that I don’t have much food waste, if I could compost I would have none.

There was a dioxin, PCB in rice bran oil scare a long time ago. I use Italian rice bran for much of my cooking, olive oil too. Other oils in salad. Canola for deep frying.

Ah, but they’re only selling bear because cows and pigs cause climate change. No tinned ham for you, you climate-destroying hooligan!

All hope is lost!!! Don’t worry guys, Ekselence Ice Cream is still 52.5 TWD a piece according to the following: The Ekselent Thread About Ekselence Ice Cream - #209 by Incubus

3 of those a day should meet your dietary requirements!!!


You’d want to get that SGS certification, especially if it was free. But once you start making money, I’m going to guess word travels and the rice bran will no longer be free. Still it’s a byproduct, so I’m surprised there’s not a homegrown rice bran oil operation. The bigger industrial extractors seem to be predominantly made in China.

I just need some factory space, and a money counting machine. Homer Simpson was right, it is all about the grease.

Something like this:

Its the holigan bears! I will later get my ham but not tinned, see what the local market has sliced up. BTW, on topic in the supermarkets in the Baltics prices are somewhat stable.

In Soviet Russia, bear eat YOU!!!

not zero. trucking costs money. I pay 600 for about 2 to 3 tonne truckload. our production area is 8km away from the mill. they do sell it out west where factories exist but the logistics costs are a bit problematic.

that said if you have a good 10 mil plus usd for investing in a proper factory, we could have a chat :slight_smile: that’s the real it’s not done in this area as of yet. but one would think the deep government pockets would be into it. maybe once China blockades our waters and we go full Cuba we will get on it :slight_smile: until then, fibers, mushrooms, fertilizers.

not weird, that’s good. it ought to be normal!

Ham NT$90

the price gouging gets waaaaay worse than that, even for ground lower quality meats here. far before even the covid gouge wars began :slight_smile:

but, people pay it, so it will keep going up until the ceiling is met. like real estate.

good to be rich :frowning:

This is South Korea, not Taiwan. South Korean bakeries shut down ovens as Ukraine war sends wheat prices soaring - YouTube
But it’s too easy to imagine something similar happening in Taiwan.

luckily we aren’t nearly as into bread as Korea, Japan etc. we might get screwed on noodles. but I have faith the instant noodle cartels are stronger than some governments and they will find a way :slight_smile: taiwan has already pushed for growing wheat and other grains here instead of wheat for a decade or so. due to taiwans water crisis, not nazis.

Beware the 牛肉麵 mafia!!!

Don 牛肉 wants his cut no matter what.


they are merely the cute scooter boys of the noodle mob. it’s the pork and seafood guys one should be afraid of in Taiwan

Stable price in August? Is it because Nancy Pelosi will be bringing a lot of eggs over?

Seemingly Costco hotdogs are inflation proof.

" $1.50: That’s the cost of a hot dog and a soda at Costco’s food courts — a price that hasn’t changed since the 1980s."



They tried to increase it once and IIRC the ceo threatened to resign if they did. They are losing money on it.
