China's pork prices continue to moderate

March 18, 2020


Abstract : Pork prices in China continued to edge down last week as hog production increased and demand softened, official data showed.

BEIJING, March 18 (Xinhua) -- Pork prices in China continued to edge down last week as hog production increased and demand softened, official data showed.

From March 9 to 13, the average pork price index in 16 provincial-level regions tracked by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs came in at 48.31 yuan (about 6.9 U.S. dollars) per kg, down 0.5 percent week on week.

The price retreat came as the Chinese government has been taking multi-pronged measures to boost supply, including increasing subsidies to restore hog production, releasing frozen pork reserves and expanding pork imports.

China's consumer prices will rise at a slower pace over the rest of the year as the country has largely curbed the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and business activities have steadily returned to normal, according to the National Development and Reform Commission.

Retail prices of pork in supermarkets and other marketplaces monitored by the commission have kept falling during the past 30 days, mainly due to the release of frozen pork from state reserves.

Prices of pork, a staple meat in China, have been soaring in recent months, mainly caused by African swine fever and cyclical factors.
