Denmark - Proposed levy on live pig exports

There have been 1,600 jobs lost in the Danish pork industry in 2008, caused by the closure of pork processing plants in the country. The blame is being placed on the fact that 120,000 pigs per week, go live to Germany for slaughter in German meat plants. The meat trade unions are now lobbying the government to impose an export levy on live pigs leaving the country.
