EU deadweight pig prices have continued to see price pressure over the past four-week period, with the average for the week ending Nov. 13 sitting at 172.81p/kg (€197.62/100kg), according to a recent AHDB report.

Average prices across key producing countries for the most recent four-week period have all declined, with the exception of the UK, which has held over the period. The largest declines have been seen across Germany and Poland, down 12.72p/kg and 11.08p/kg respectively. Denmark saw the smallest decline, with prices dipping only 1.68p/kg. 

Continental prices remained at a discount to the UK price through the four weeks, although movements in sterling continue to affect EU prices. In the week to the Nov. 13, the discount ranged between 23p/kg and 51p/kg. Please treat comparisons with caution as references prices are ‘gross prices’, AHDB said.

In the latest week (week ending Nov. 13), prices have seen slight increases across key markets with the exception of France, which has seen a 3.62p decrease. Across the EU 27 average, there has been a 1.36p/kg uplift in price, with Poland seeing the biggest prices increase on the week, up 3.36p/kg.
