Price summary

Prices of AA broiler were higher prices in Sichuan, Hebei and Henan but were lower in Shandong and Jiangsu provinces. In Liaoning, prices were at the previous week's level.

Market analysis

AA broiler
In Sichuan, the approaching week-long National Day holidays (Oct 1-7) and Mid Autumn Festival (Oct 6) triggered an increase in broiler procurement from restaurants and meat plants. Meanwhile, the cooler weather had also contributed to higher consumer meat demand.

Prices in Henan were higher mainly on increased pre-holiday demand. However, the persistently high prices have led some of the local meat processors and frozen meat plants to procure only in smaller quantities.

An increase in supplies had caused initially higher prices in Shandong to weaken towards the end of the week in review. Chicken meat processors had reduced procurement as there was only a few days left to early October's holiday period. Some processors have stopped taking up supplies as procurement cost were above their target level.

Adequately stocked broiler processors in Jiangsu have cut down on broiler procurement and there were fewer cross province deliveries. The excess broiler supplies had caused prices to slip.

In Liaoning, broiler supplies had remained low and prices had stayed at last week's level. Many chicken meat plants had suspended their slaughtering operation as they were unable to secure adequate supplies.

In neighbouring Hebei, supplies have increased but active procurement by chicken meat processors have kept prices firm.

China breed broiler

Prices of China breed broilers in Guangxi Zhuang region were sharply lower. Buyers were still taking up supplies but a bigger-than-expected increase in broiler supplies ahead of early October's holiday period had caused prices to fall.

In Guangdong, prices were only marginally higher as the effects of a strong pre-holiday demand were offset by a significant increase in broiler supply.

Market forecast

With the approach of the holiday period in early October, overall broiler demand and supply in most regions of China have increased. Near-term broiler prices are seen to remain largely stable. In certain regions with lower supplies, broiler prices may continue to rise.
