Members updates: Investigating the fall in the SPP, lobbying latest and other messages

7th Oct 2021 / By Alistair Driver

There have been three updates in the Members' Area today, covering the SPP, the latest on our lobbying efforts and more. 

The NPA is doing what it can to investigate the cause of the big drop in the SPP and to try and prevent it from becoming a bigger problem.

The EU-spec SPP fell by a massive 4.75p to 148.82p/kg last week, and now stands 10p below where it was last week. 

AHDB said the drop was likely to have been ‘influenced by some particularly low prices paid by abattoirs for batches of pigs outside contracts, as the market finds an outlet for some pigs killed with only minimal butchery’.
