Demand has picked up in time for Easter for the bacon tade.
However, while demand is up, prices remain unchanged, although Dutch traders remain optomistic that prices will move upwards. “There’s no doubt we’re on the bottom right now, so prices can only go up,” said one trader this week. Pig prices on the continent have dropped although raw material costs have remained the same.
Meanwhile Danish traders said product might not be as plentiful in the next few weeks.
