In the week ending 15 July, the EU-spec SPP climbed for the twentieth consecutive week to 164.20p/kg. This is the second highest price recorded since the series began in April 2014, just behind week ending 31 May 2014 when the price reached 164.22p/kg.
During the 12 weeks ended 18 June, the primary pork volume sales decreased by 3% on a year-on-year basis, according to the latest data from Kantar Worldpanel. However, a 5% increase in the average retail price meant that overall spend was up by 2%.
Over the next decade global pig meat production is expected to increase in line with demand, according to the latest OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook. However, pig meat, traditionally the world’s most consumed animal protein, is set to be overtaken by poultry meat.
