Although it is not yet known how the ASF will spread in the coming months, it is clear that the scale of the potential growth in demand and the potential risk of infection may never have been more significant than it is now, pigua.info reported.
The cost of meat in Ukraine since the beginning of this year has got up by almost a quarter, in particular, beef has risen in price by 30%, and pork - by 15%, the press service of the consulting agency Pro Consulting reports, according to Unian.
As Vesti predicted, the prices suddenly raised with the beginning of autumn. Most of all, the prices hit the so-called borshch set, but soon the price tags will also change for bread and salo, Vesti reported.
Unlike the current weather conditions, the mood of the pig markets in the EU is pretty cool. On the part of meat processing companies, the demand for pigs is very low-key, while the supply volume is quite high, pigua.info reported.
By the end of the year pork may rise in price by 7%, equaling the price of beef. However, there are more affordable types of meat - chicken. This opinion was expressed by the Chairman of the Association of Trade Network Suppliers Oleksii Doroshenko in the comment for UNN.
Ukraine is on the first place in the ranking of 52 countries of the world with the most affordable poultry meat and one of the leaders at the lowest price for pork and beef. This is evidenced by the data of the British edition of The National Provisioner, which specializes in agrarian subjects, АgroРolit.com reported.
