GB finished pig prices continued their upward trajectory in the week ending 16 November. This puts prices over 14p above both the same week last year and the five-year average.
The UK’s pork export market has continued to perform well for another month. In September, shipments of fresh/frozen pork were up 8% on the year, at 21,500 tonnes.
French pig prices usually follow the trend of other EU pig prices, although they are usually at a discount to the EU reference price. 2019 has been no different.
