Spectacular recovery of the USA price

24-Feb-2017 (2 days ago)
The huge difference in prices between Europe (represented, in this case, by the German prices) and the USA, that has lasted for more than half a year, is ending due to the spectacular recovery of the USA price in the last weeks. From the USD40.53/cwt in mid-November, when it reached its lowest price, the current prices exceed USD74/cwt. The important increase in the pork and offal exports, specially in November and December, have entailed a rise in prices, that had been penalised by the sustained increase in the supply. In spite of the rise, the prices in February are almost USD10/cwt above the prices in the same period in 2016, but they are below the 2011-2015 average. Regarding the average annual price, in 2016 it was USD60.95/cwt: USD6/cwt lower than in 2015 and well below the annual average in the last 6 years.
