Pig prices remain at a low level

(AMI - 30.07.2015) A below-average volume of pigs across Europe faces an ongoing sluggish demand on the part of the abattoirs. Pork prices remain stagnant in terms of price, there is no air for higher pork prices. Conversely, the balanced market situation at a low level signals any price pressure.

In Belgium , many tourists out of the country, as in France, or in Spain are in the main holiday season. The pig market is balanced at a low level. Impulses from exports are expected in September in trade with China, because in the past few weeks, several companies received from Chinese veterinary trade licenses, and because a significantly reduced production in China is expected by market analysts. 

A not to large supply of pigs, stable slaughter if the declining weight of battle is reported from France . The price increases initiated by the policy, food retailing and the slaughter industry to mitigate the threatening situation of the pig farmers is maxed out. Export-dependent slaughterhouses have regional cut their activities so that some sections on slaughter pigs were marketed forced way to slaughter after Belgium. The domestic demand for pork is satisfactory during the tourist high season, complained, however, are the weak export and the extensive stocks of frozen goods.

Stable prices are forecast to expected mid-August in Spain . Here, too, the amount of pigs is not too large. The export goes most satisfactorily, however is charged via a high pressure of competition between operators from the EU and the United States. In the Spain's tourism strongholds push cheap offers on frozen and cooled goods from Germany and Denmark the revenues for fresh Spanish goods.

In Italy , prices are expected to continue at the relatively low level. The supply of pigs is small, there is weak demand for pork. Small bright spot is that ham prices in Italy successively easily could screw up in the past few weeks upwards.
