We are writing to inform you about the unavoidable protein shortage which will shortly affect our Australian Meat prices and in turn both our businesses.
The African Swine fever has moved to China destroying 30% of China’s total Pork supply which is equivalent to 300% of Australia’s total protein production.
How this affects us?
Due to the reduction of China’s local supply they are now sourcing protein from overseas, Australia included, therefore increasing demand. This year alone Australia’s meat exports have increased by 60%.
Pressure continues to increase on the grain market with the long term drought and the need to feed livestock.
Unfortunately we inform you price increases on our meat produce will be increasing in July until further notice.
Please also note ALL Bacon will be having pricing increases ranging from 18%- 20%.
We would like to thank you all for your continued support throughout this time.
Please feel free to contact the office if you have any questions or you sales representative.
The Reliable Team
