Did you know...?

...that a basket of pork products from the top four multiples costs shoppers on average a third more than a year ago but producers are receiving only a quarter more for their pigs? The "DAPP v pork basket price" is updated every week on the market intelligence section of the BPEX website @ www.bpex.org.uk.

...the Pigs Are Worth It campaign has been running since September 2007 and calls for a fairer price for pig farmers. Activity has included a major advertising campaign, a rally in Westminster attended by around 700 farmers, a national roadshow and the recording of campaign anthem, 'Stand by Your Ham.' Over 19,000 people have signed an online petition at www.pigsareworthit.com and 72

MPs have

signed an

Early Day Motion in support of

pig farmers.
