It is pouring in with money from the Danish pig farmer these days. While the fever has ravaged its way through China, Danish exports of pig buldret forward, and the prices to the peasants for their swine, is soaring.
But at the same time to svinebønderne parties, is a serious prishammer to the Danish consumers at the to take shape.
"We are talking about frikadellen are almost twice as expensive. We expect that next year we are going to see pigmeat prices, which have risen by 80 or 90 percent in stores," says Lars Aarup, analysechef at Coop, which operates the Brugsen-chains, Fakta, Kvickly and Irma:
"We have seen rising prices of pork throughout the year, and we have tried to keep the prices down in the shops. But we can't be at," says Lars Aarup.
He becomes more concrete:
"If you take a packet of minced pork, which cost 22 dollars in February this year, so cost is the only 38 dollars in February 2020. So it is a solid increase, which is on the way."
the Prospect of the significantly more expensive chops, medisterpølser and meatballs is a direct consequence of svinebønderne suddenly can take care really well paid.
It can, because a severe outbreak of african swine fever in several countries has meant that only in China have had to kill up to 200 million pigs.
It has created a big demand on Danish pigs and pushed the back of an export boom, as will Agriculture and Food to foretell, to 2019 will be the largest eksportår ever in Denmark.
At the beginning of 2019, took a Danish svinebonde 8,3 dollars for a kilo of pork.
Since the price has increased by 60 percent to 13.3 crowns kiloet.
Nevertheless, the Danish consumers ’only’ experienced increases in pork at around 6-7 percent the past year, according to figures from Statistics Denmark.
But who is talking about a kind of calm before the storm.
Right now, keeps the supermarkets on the prices in the ro in order to lure the customers in and buy the roast pork for christmas. Then there is the doomed rising prices.
"It can't be avoided, that we are going to see more expensive pork in the supermarkets. With the prices we are seeing at the moment, we can expect fairly dramatic price increases in the retail industry," assesses Henning Eight-Hansen, senior adviser at University of Copenhagen:
"lacking pigs in China, and therefore there comes to the shortage of pigs in Denmark. So I reckon that the prices of pork increases by about 15-20 percent over the next six months alone."
At the Agriculture and Food representing svinebønderne, it is said, however, not at all, that there is reason to fear tremendously expensive meatballs.
chief Economist Frank Øland calls for calm.
"When I look at the quotations from the svinebønderne and consumer prices, so everything points to perhaps the missing five percent increase the next year. It comes on top of the six percent, we have seen the past year," said Frank Øland:
"But instead of being afraid that the cutlets are rising in price, you might be pleased that there are some farmers who have really good backgrounds in the moment."Date Of Update: 11 December 2019, 07:00
