The 12 weeks to 26 February were a mixed bag for pig meat sales, with some differences between categories, according to data provided by Kantar Worldpanel.
Surprisingly, pig slaughterings within the EU were marginally up for 2016 as a whole, given the decline in the breeding herd reported in both December 2015 and June 2016.
Defra figures from the 1 December 2016 pig survey show a modest increase in the overall UK pig herd, by 3% to 4.5 million head.
