Pork prices rising in Poland
Since the opening of the Russian market for Polish
pigmeat two weeks ago, prices for pork in Poland have risen €0.20 per kilo
Polish chief veterinarian, Ewa Lech announced that 29 companies have been
given permission to export meat to Russia, following inspections by the Russians
Russia's lifting of the ban on December 19, 2007 on Polish meat imports is
seen as the major factor causing the price increase.
This increase contrasts with the pork price situation in the rest of the EU,
which is currently stable. Other East European countries will be relieved to see
an end to low-priced Polish pork exports.
However, in Poland, increased pork prices will likely influence rising food
prices as inflation itself is rising to 5%.
Analysts believe that Poland will now be able to export around 30-50,000
tonnes of meat to the Russian market this year.
