With Rising Food Inflation, The Pork Industry Remains Stable

With Rising Food Inflation, The Pork Industry Remains Stable

The recent rises in inflation have taken their toll on consumers’ wallets, especially regarding food. Many people have to cut back on ‘luxuries’ such as lamb and beef, substituting them for cheaper cuts. But there is some good news.

Despite the financial chaos, the pork industry has maintained its prices, they remain low amid sky-high food inflation. This means that making the switch and putting high-quality pork on the plates will likely save South Africans much-needed cash.

However, the question is whether choosing pork is just a question of price or whether it offers a real value proposition.

At this point in time, according to a credible source, “the beef price to the farmers is about R60 and to the lamb farmers R110, whereas pork farmers are getting around R28. We think that after the good rains, some of the farmers are keeping back their beef stock… and therefore the price has risen whereas with pork the pigs are coming through from the farms [consistently].”
