Overview of November 2021 meat market report:
The biggest concern, remains with availability and pricing. With prices continuing to strongly march upwards, availability remains tight.
We have been discussing with all our clients the need to react to the market as we simply cannot stand still, and we thank everyone for working with us to support this. It is pleasing that the majority of our customers have been understanding and accept that this is an industry wide issue and ‘we are all in this together’.
Please always remember, despite rising costs, there is usually an alternative available, whether that be on origin or specification change, our experienced team can always help.
Overview of April 2021 butchers market report:
Retail sales remain high and this is not expected to change. In fact, demand is expected to further increase as many people will choose not to travel anywhere this summer and prefer to stay at home resulting in an increased seasonal demand on BBQ products. Some well-known supermarket chains are already struggling to fulfil their requirements resulting in empty shelves in some stores over Valentine’s and Mother day, especially with steak meat. The forecast hospitality comeback anticipated will increase further pressure on processing partners supplying all species both from the UK and the EU.
