During the first six months of 2015 the Belgian pork exports grew by 4% in terms of volume. 90% of the exports were to European countries. Most of them (61%) were sold as carcasses, followed by cuts (27%).

Poland, with a rise by 15%, represents 24% of the total exported volume, and places as the second main destination, Germany placing first (32%). Exports to the Czech Republic and Slovakia have grown significantly (+19% and 96%, respectively) representing 3.4% and 1.3% of the exports. The UK, with increases in the last years, holds the fifth place, with a growth by 24%.
