Japanese customers will begin to see prices increase on many food items starting tommorrow

Picture: Japanese instant noodles

"Price hikes will start with shipments Monday for food and seasonings such as jam and dressing.The price increases stem from increased import costs due to rising prices of raw materials and the yen’s weakness.... Because the government decided to raise the prices of imported wheat sold to flour mills in October, the wave of price hikes is expected to spread to bread and noodles."
