Rising supplies of other meats provide competition for pork
As reported last week, latest AHDB Beef & Lamb forecasts suggest there will be more beef and sheep meat on the UK market this year. With an expectation that poultry supplies will also be higher, the meat market looks set to remain competitive.
This could mean that the recent deflation in the retail meat market could continue. Even if, as indicated in AHDB Pork forecasts published last month, there is less pig meat on the market, this competition could hold prices down to some extent.
