Canada - Pork product exports up despite hog output decline

Exports of Canada`s pork products have managed to hold steady and even climb despite live hog output in the country continuing to decline. The ability to maintain exports of Canada's pork products also comes as domestic production of those products begins to decline.

Exports of Canada`s pork products have managed to hold steady and even climb despite live hog output in the country continuing to decline. The ability to maintain exports of Canada's pork products also comes as domestic production of those products begins to decline.

"Considering that Canada's live hog production is about 25 per cent smaller than it was five years ago, the level of pork product exports have been holding steady and in some cases have been a bit higher," said Martin Rice, executive director of the Canadian Pork Council in Ottawa.
Canada's live hog exports have declined significantly, but Canada's pork processing sector has been producing at a steady pace, he said.

Japan is expected to remain Canada's highest-value market for pork products despite the U.S. being Canada's highest tonnage outlet.

Canadian pork product sales during calendar year 2009 to all global destinations totalled 1.075 million tonnes, compared with 1.094 million in 2008. At the end of July in 2010, Canadian pork product sales to all destinations were 633,525 tonnes.
