28/4/11 Press Release
Weekly summaries of the red meat industry markets, retail prices and other industry trends are now accessible directly via the EBLEX website.
Until recently, the UK Market Survey and EU Market Survey had been available by paid subscription only to beef and sheep, and pig industry, levy payers. Now the weekly updates are available free to anyone in the industry and can be requested via www.eblex.org.uk, either as an ongoing weekly email or as a one-off.
Making the publications more accessible as a useful tool to producers, processors and retailers alike is part of EBLEX’s ongoing work to add value to the beef and sheep industry and ensure up-to-date information is available to help make business decisions.
The UK Market Survey reports the latest trends in the domestic beef, lamb and pork markets, including up-to-date auction and deadweight prices together with estimated weekly slaughter throughputs. It also reports latest retail prices and consumer purchasing trends. Import and export data is analysed and reported on, together with UK regional slaughter throughputs on a monthly basis.
The European Market Survey takes a look at current trends across Europe, including weekly price information from all 27 member states for cattle, heavy and light lambs, and pigs. Data includes key wholesale prices and weekly slaughter trends from the main continental markets. This survey also provides an analysis of important wider global markets.
You can access the market surveys here.
