Meat producers The sustained recovery of UK pig prices
While this is the highest figure since last September, however, it’s still well below the 40%+ share received by producers for much of 2014.
Although overall retail prices were stable in July, there was some movement for individual cuts, according to AHDB’s retail price survey.
Loin steaks were 4% cheaper than in June, for example, while pork mince was 2% more expensive.
Compared with July 2015, prices for all monitored cuts were lower this year with the biggest falls being seen with boneless shoulder, down 9%, loin chops, -7%, steaks, -6%, and traditional pork sausages, also -6%. ■
