According to the Hefei Municipal Development and Reform Commission website, in April, the market prices of five major agricultural and sideline products fell threefold (vegetables, meat, eggs) and two fold (grain and oil). The specific trend analysis is as follows:
Pork prices continue to fall.
In April, the average retail price of the three types of pork in the city’s market was 4.14 yuan /g, down 23.3% month-on-month and up 98.6% year-on-year. The purchase price of pigs is 59.7 yuan/g. It decreased by 40.6% month-on-month and increased by 03.8% year-on-year.
Reason analysis: In April, breeding enterprises continued to maintain stable pig production and sufficient market supply. Coupled with insufficient support for pork consumption in the end market, pig slaughter prices and pork retail prices continued to decline. Future Forecasts: Pork prices are expected to remain low in the near future.
Vegetable prices fell sharply.
In April, the average retail price of 4 vegetable varieties in the Hefei market was 15.3 yuan /g, down 08.16% month-on-month and 53.22% year-on-year.
