Chinese meat prices still high

Monday, 6 January 2020

Despite China taking more meat from all over the world, it has not been enough to stop wholesale meat prices from rising. Pork prices have more than doubled over the past six months. Beef and lamb prices recorded some significant rises during 2018 and have been on a gentle climb over the past 12 months. Pork prices have cooled slightly in the past few months, potentially due to the Chinese government releasing pork from a national reserve onto the market, temporarily increasing supply.
