The pork price decreased!

On the domestic market of Ukraine, a moderate decline in prices for pork in live weight is observed during the first half of September. It is noted that this week there was a loss of more than 1.4% of the internal quotations, compared to the previous one.

This is discussed in the report of the Association of Pig Breeders of Ukraine.

“The result of Friday trading is that their pigs were “painted” a little cheaper than in the last week of summer. This is due to the fact that the operators of the pork sales market have adjusted the purchase prices - from 0.25 to 1.5 UAH / kg downward. Based on this, the majority of batches were sold in the range from 45 to 46.75 UAH / kg, and the average indicator for the market decreased by 1.4%, if compared with the previous week - to 46.2 UAH / kg, " message.

Market participants ascertain the discrepancy between regional purchase prices: for example, if, in the Center, in the East - purchase prices are mostly 46 UAH / kg, then the western part shows prices above average. A different “pricing policy” can be observed in the southern regions - here the purchase price reaches 48 UAH / kg, and the “velvet” season helps sales.
