Estimated cost of pig production and estimated net margins
The EU exported 190,300 tonnes of pork in March, 8% less than last year, according to the latest data from Eurostat. Average prices also fell by 7%, and so the fall in the value of exports was down by 15% on year earlier levels, at €432 million.
During April, the share of the pork retail price received by producers stood just below 39%, according to AHDB estimates.
The Asia-Pacific region continues to offer opportunities for the UK pork sector – but industry must continue to work hard to ensure UK products are at the top of the list for importers.
