Producer share of retail price declines slightly
The producer share of the retail pork price declined on the previous month during November to stand at 41%, a decline of almost one percentage point. However, this is still one percentage point above the level recorded this time last year and when compared to historic levels this is still relatively high.
The average retail price remained steady with a decline of just 1.2p/kg. Meanwhile the EU-spec APP recorded a monthly decline of 2%, standing at 156.3p/kg.
Across the different cuts there was more of a mixed picture. Compared to the previous month most cuts remained steady or recorded a small decrease in price. However, both minced pork and traditional pork sausages recorded increases of 2% and 3% respectively. Compared to the same month last year, some cuts remained stable while shoulder (boneless) retail price decreased by 4%. Conversely, minced pork and traditional pork sausages recorded rises of 7% and 5% respectively.
