The last data of the EU Management Committee regarding pork trade show an increase by 3.6% in the exports during the first semester of 2015 in comparison with the same period in 2014. In total, during the first half of 2015, a total 1,404,263 tonnes have been exported.
We must highlight the importance of the Asian markets, China being the main destination with 32.5% of the total exports (and a rise by 38% with respect to 2014), followed by Japan, with 9.7% of the total exports; South Korea 8.7% and Hong Kong 8.1%. We can also see an increase of the pork exports to Australia by 38%, although this market only represents 2.6% of the total exports.
