In the week ended 10 March the EU-spec SPP remained steady on the week, rising by a modest 0.05p to 145.71p/kg. The price stood 4p below year earlier levels when, in the equivalent week last year, prices were rising.
Last year was a somewhat mixed picture for household pig meat purchases in the key EU consuming countries.
Despite significant growth in production in January, UK pork exports were less than 1% higher than year earlier levels during the month, totalling 17,000 tonnes.
