The spot market also appears to have hit a plateau after rising throughout most of the summer. Spot bacon prices are up to 115p/kg and bids between 113-114p are commonplace.

The sow market is also holding firm with EU buyers reporting a lack of supplies rather than strong demand. As a result UK cull sow abattoirs were generally quoting in the 80p/kg region compared with 75 – 76p this time a year ago.
