Global pork trade hit by China-US trade war


The growing trade tensions between China and the US, and Mexico and the US, are likely to ‘greatly impact’ global pork trade, which is already changing, in H2 2018, Rabobank said in its latest Pork Quarterly Q3 Report. However “the nature of the pressure will depend on each trading position.”

Also rocking the market is the increased production across the globe in H1 2018, which will continue to weigh on global prices. Diseases, particularly African Swine Fever which is spreading in Europe, could also add to the uncertainty in supply and trade. Rabobank added that it “expects ongoing change in the global pork trade into 2019.”
