Producers share of pork price continuing to increase

The producer’s share of the retail pork price increased marginally in August, reaching 36%, the highest share for the past 18 months. This was 1 percentage point greater than both the previous month and the same point last year. However, this still remains significantly behind the 40% plus share of retail price producers were enjoying back in 2014.

The increase in producers share has been assisted by the continued recovery of GB pig prices at a time when the retail price has remained largely stable. Pig prices continued to increase into August, with the EU-spec APP up over 7p/kg in August on the previous month, and over 1p on the same period a year earlier. At the same time, the retail prices also rose in August up by 1.5% on the previous month, but remained 1.1% below August 2015.
