UK pig prices have recorded four consecutive weeks of decline, according to a recent report from AHDB analyst Freya Shuttleworth.  

Pressure on prices due to several factors, inclusion higher production and weaker demand. August monthly production and kill figures are the highest so far this year.

Demand remains negative year-on-year, with retail purchase volumes down 2.7% Some of the pressure behind these price declines is likely driven by falling pig prices in the EU marketplace.

Monthly import volumes in growth year-on-year, but year-to-date volumes remain behind 2022.
