The Spanish listing was also stable at the level reached and thus remains in first place in the European price structure of the five largest pig-keeping EU member states. However, the seasonal peak seems to have been exceeded with the end of the holiday season.

The consumption of pork in Spain has now dropped again due to seasonal factors. At the same time, demand in China has picked up significantly, benefiting the EU's largest pork exporter.

The French listing added to a significant increase in the previous week for a corrected cent. The market situation in Belgium was slightly weaker. The revised listing was unable to maintain the level reached and eased to €1.66 / kg.
