Shoppers suffering supermarket sticker shock should prepare for even higher prices as chicken and pork prices are projected to rise.

The two had so far been mostly unaffected by increasing food prices, but
Analysts predict that will change.

Chicken and pig producers are losing money on the high cost of feed, so
They're expected to decrease supply and in turn, increase prices.

The government expects to see food prices overall jump another four to five
percent this year.
