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 - December 2014 

The FAO Meat Price Index averaged 204 points in December, a reduction of 4 points (1.9 percent) from November, reflecting weaker quotations for bovine and ovine meat from Oceania and lower pigmeat prices from Europe. The stronger US dollar and a growth in export availability were among the main factors influencing prices. However, meat products were the only commodity group within the FAO Food Price Index to register an increase during 2014, up 8.1 percent from 2013.
