Tulip under fire after pig price cut

17 December, 2010

Danish owned-meat processing giant Tulip has prompted anger among UK pig farmers after dropping prices by a penny.

The decision flies in the face of the Deadweight Average Pig Price (DAPP), which has been rising, according to the National Pig Association (NPA).

“This is an extraordinarily negative response to a rising DAPP,” said NPA chairman Stewart Houston. “As producers themselves Tulip should know how difficult this is for producers and should be going the other way.”

Cranswick, Vion and Woodhead remain unchanged - Cranswick and Vion at 136p and Woodhead at 140p. Tulip’s drop in price brings into line with competitors at 136p a kg.
