Milk Powder Prices go Stratospheric

According to a recent report by China’s official Xinhua News Agency, some popular non-Chinese brands of milk powder, including Ausnutria and Nestle, have already raised their prices in China, even as the government moves to contain price rises for commodities. As domestic fears linger over the safety of Chinese milk powder and other food products, with a spate of scandals recently, foreign brands have been in high demand. Xinhua reported that other foreign milk powder brands are also exploring price rises. In this cartoon, posted by the Kunming-based studio Yuan Jiao Man’s Space (圆觉漫时空) to QQ.com, the mascots for the Ausnutria and Nestle brands of milk powder, headquartered in Australia and Switzerland respectively, clutch on to a canister of milk powder that fires off into the stratosphere, its fiery jets forming the symbol for the yuan currency.
