During the 12 weeks ended 18 June, the primary pork volume sales decreased by 3% on a year-on-year basis, according to the latest data from Kantar Worldpanel. However, a 5% increase in the average retail price meant that overall spend was up by 2%. 

3. Global pig meat production set to rise further

Over the next decade global pig meat production is expected to increase in line with demand, according to the latest OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook. However, pig meat, traditionally the world’s most consumed animal protein, is set to be overtaken by poultry meat.
