CHICKEN MARKET

What’s up in the chicken market?

The market reported weakness on bnls breast, thigh meat, wings, and tenders as the week progressed, but it was not necessarily a reflection of what was available. Pricing and supply stabilized as the days passed, and any spot availability on these items has gotten a little bit tighter. Wogs remain steady, as does dark meat, for the most part.

What's happening next week?

Market stability is on the horizon, as discounting on the major items is subsiding

BEEF MARKET

What’s up in the beef market?

Demand concerns have helped keep the beef market sluggish. Traders and distributors alike are questioning whether or not the beef marker will push higher in the short –term, or stay steady to lower. I think once we get into November, we will see higher prices going into the holidays and the short kill weeks. 

What's next week's special?

According to the President, the port of LA has agreed to work 24 hours seven days a week. If this does come to pass, and the Walmart’s and Costco’s of the world move to their own ships and containers that use other ports, perhaps the bottleneck on beef shipments into and out of the U.S. will clear up or at least improve?

SEAFOOD MARKET

What’s up in the seafood market?

The market continues to rise on imported seafood.  Supply and Logistics are the main culprit still.  Not much has changed there.  We continue to see pricing on everything from tilapia to shrimp rise up.  

 This trend will continue into next year for sure as we won’t see relief any time soon.  We will stay ahead of the curve to be able to deliver the best product at the best price to our customers.

Thoughts for next week?

Same song and dance for next week, waiting on certain items to clear customs.

What is your favorite candy?

My favorite Candy is Starbursts  😊

PORK MARKET

What’s up in the pork market?

Pork values are down more than 6% on the week and down to the lowest values since March.  Hog supplies tend to increase in the autumn, pushing more pork on the market and weighing on prices
