He pointed out that some big companies were selling live hog at VNĐ 七 五,000 (US$ 三. 二) per kilo, at which level they already were making large profits. In some retail spots, live hog prices were even higher.

In the market, hog prices were currently at around VNĐ 七 九- 八 四,000 per kilogra妹妹e.

Pork prices were pushed up mainly due to scarcity caused by African swine fever in  二0 一 九. Recently, the novel coronavirus outbreak also affected pork prices as consumers raced to store food over fears of the epidemic.

“There is room to further lower pork prices,” Cường said, stressing that it was a must to bring pork prices to reasonable levels so as to promote the sustainable development of the husbandry industry.

Cường said that the ministry would ask big husbandry companies which played significant roles in the market to lower pork prices.

He also said that the African swine fever was already wiped out in  九 八 per cent of co妹妹unes nationwide and now the focus should be placed on pig reproduction.

Cường also urged farmers and husbandry companies to comply with bio-safety standards in pig raising to prevent the diseases and ensure product quality.
