GB deadweight pig prices (EU spec)


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.

In April 2020 the weight bands we publish were amended. This report below provides some historical figures for comparison purposes.

Data by weight band is published on a weekly basis in our SPP full report.

There are minimum thresholds for publication to ensure our prices are as robust as possible and comply with competition law guidance. On occasions, therefore, a full breakdown of weekly prices and throughputs by weight band and prices by lean meat % may not be available.

Price comparisons

Treat comparisons across countries with caution as the reference prices are ‘gross prices’ – before deductions or retrospective bonuses.

In some countries, such as the UK, there are below-the-line deductions from the gross price, which are carried by the producer, such as procurement, transport, meat inspection, classification, levy, lorry washing and insurances.

In other countries, some or all of these costs are paid for by processors; this increases processor costs and results in a lower price paid direct to producers.

It should also be noted that the prices are expressed on a cold weight basis, but producers in various EU countries may be paid on a cold weight, hot weight or liveweight basis. Hot and liveweight prices will be converted into a cold weight equivalent and these conversion factors can vary across countries.
