Pork price in Mekong Delta region surges

The agricultural sector in the Mekong Delta region said that the pork price in many localities has increased from VND1,000 (US$0.04) to VND3,000 (US$0.13) per kilogram over the recent two weeks and currently holds the sharpest surge since the beginning of the year.
The pork price is trading from VND56,000 (US$2.4) to VND58,000 (US$2.5) per kilogram, a surge of VND7,000 (US$0.3) to VND8,000 (US$0.35) per kilogram over the beginning of 2022.

The pork price has increased but it is still lower than the selling price in same period last year from VND12,000 (US$0.52) to VND13,000 (US$0.56) per kilogram.

With the surge, many pig farming households still do not earn profits as the processed food and input costs have increased sharply.
