Danish exports. In 2009 the percentage was 5.5. It is a very strong drop from 1988 where meat
and meat products represented 9.8 %.
The figures appear in an analysis from the Danish Exports Council. The development is not very good news for the total Danish export. There is much value added in the last part of the process.
