Do you give a fork about your Pork?
BPEX have published a quarterly report on the state of the pork market. At the start of 2013 the cost of British pork was 16% higher than it was in 2011 as prices continue to rise. Retail prices for pork were nearly 9% higher over the last 12-month period, recording a larger increase than beef, lamb or poultry. With volume purchases of pork down 4% compared to last year many farmers and small producers are under increasing pressure to deliver quality and value for money.
