UK pig meat production totalled 71,900 tonnes in December, which is a slight increase (+1%) compared to a year earlier. This brings production for 2018 to 926,700 tonnes, 24,100 tonnes higher (+3%) than in 2017. This is a result of higher slaughterings for both clean pigs and sows and boars.
During November 2018, UK exports of fresh/frozen pork continued to record year-on-year growth (+5% or 900 tonnes), reaching 19,500 tonnes.
Pig and poultry farmers will soon be able to demonstrate compliance with new permitting rules, using two new, simple calculators, free of charge.
