Demand remains softer given the demand and sales for January and February year after year. Transportation, labor and COVID continue to heighten volatility within the market.

Pork

Hams hit their floor last week and are starting to come back up. Loins came off their lows and made some big gains. Butts remained flat.

THE SEA

Seafood

Congestion in ports has not improved, impacting seafood pricing and availability. Inflation persists in most seafood categories.

THE KITCHEN SINK

Dairy

The block and barrel markets are in decline for the week while the butter, cream and eggs market are up due to bad weather across the country.
