Getting through tough times

Home \ Pig Production \ Getting through tough times

With the industry facing tough times due to rock bottom prices, AHDB Pork is coordinating a range of activities to support pig producers. This includes meetings, webinars, online information and ‘what if?’ calculations to help producers re-evaluate their units and influence their cost of production.

At the same time, work continues apace to help drive demand for pork both here in the UK, via the latest burst of the Pulled Pork campaign, and through opening and developing export markets for our product, from China and central Africa to Australia.
