New FAO Meat Price Index

The FAO Meat Price Index has been revised to better reflect the structure of world trade in meat products...

The FAO Meat Price Index - June 2014 

The FAO Meat Price Index averaged 194.2 points in June, 1.4 points (0.7 percent) more than in May and 14.6 points (8.1 percent) above last year. The June increase of the index was principally due to a continuing strengthening of pigmeat prices, as world supplies were constrained in recent months by an outbreak of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus in the United States. Bovine and ovine meat quotations also moved seasonally higher, while prices for poultry meat were little changed.
