Demand for meat in the EU has generally slowed since the economic downturn in 2008, particularly for red meat. However, in comparison to beef and lamb, pork has performed relatively well. Data from key countries for early 2014 provide further confirmation of this. However, while the EU economic outlook suggests some improvement, growth is likely to be sluggish and some uncertainties remain.
