MALTA - The price of fresh Maltese pork will go up from Monday due to the global increase in the cost of animal feed, the Pig Breeders’ Cooperative Society Limited said on Wednesday, 1 August.

>The increase will be of 20c per kilo on the price of whole pig carcasses sold by the cooperative,

It blamed price volatility in international markets for cereals and other ingredients, exacerbated by poor weather in cereal and soya producing countries.

The cooperative did not rule out further increases, with indications being that cereal prices will continue to rise.
