GB deadweight pig prices (EU spec)
Last updated 26 March 2020
The APP (All Pig Price) is the GB average deadweight pig price achieved by producers each week. The SPP (Standard Pig Price) is the average price for GB standard pigs, those that have not received a premium for the production system, feed regime or breed. The prices are collected from voluntary surveys. These prices are for carcases dressed to EU specification.
The EU-spec SPP was steady in the week ending 21 March, losing 0.07p to average 163.15p/kg. To say demand in the UK has been unsettled would be an understatement. Responses put in place to battle the coronavirus have led eating out volumes to drop dramatically, while retail purchases have risen sharply.
