The Ministry of Agro-industry of Argentina brought together the pig value chain to agree on tools that allow to strengthen the activity and to promote the home consumption and the exports.

The State Secretary for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Mr. Ricardo Negri, stated that the main actions are towards "adding value based on the production potential of the sector, where the state plays an assembling role so as to leave the short term according to strategic goals".

During the meeting, the representatives of the production and industrial sectors of the value chain posed questions related to the increase of the production costs, the drop in profitability, and the commercial distorsion generated by the imports of some fresh meat cuts.

In this sense, the State Deputy Secretary, Mr. Rodrigo Troncoso, pointed out that “we must move towards the promotion of pork consumption and delve on the work performed by the Secretariat of Agro-industrial Markets with the promotion of exports”. Likewise, he stated that they will analyse, together with the Minister of Production, the possibility of applying non-automatic importation licenses for some cuts.

Regarding the small producers, Mr. Troncoso claimed that “we will work, tending, specially, to the specific needs of that sector, through the Rural Change (Cambio Rural), the INTA (Agriculture and National Institute of Livestock Technology) and the Secretariat of Family Agriculture; and we will aid the Cooperatives that help to take a step forward in productivity matters.”
