The latest European commission short-term outlook report expects that EU pork exports will continue to rise. This reflects increasing Asian demand due to African swine fever (ASF). The outlook also suggests EU pig meat consumption per capita is set to decrease by 2% (0.5 kg) during 2019.
The UK’s pork export market has performed well for another month. In August, shipments of fresh/frozen pork were up 17% on the year, at 21,300 tonnes.
