According to AHDB Pork, export volumes of fresh/frozen pork from the Netherlands were down in the first quarter of 2016, by 8%, to 185 thousand tonnes. A reduction in shipment volumes to Germany, back 31%, was a driving force behind this movement. Export volumes were increased to Italy and Greece, by 3% and 22% respectively. Shipments to China increased five-fold in Q1 versus the same period a year earlier. While export volumes were back 8% in Q1, the value of these exports was only down 4%. The average unit price in Germany and China increased versus the same period a year earlier, by 16% and 2%.

While export volumes of fresh/frozen pork to Germany were down, exports of live pigs to Germany were up 33% in Q1, and accounted for three quarters of the total 1.25 million head of live pigs exported from the Netherlands during this period. With the German pig herd declining, demand for live pigs for finishing and processing in Germany has increased.
