European Union: increase of pork exports

Pork exports have reached about 934,810 tonnes during the first four months of this year which, compared to the same period last year, amounts to an increase of 6.1%.

Wednesday 8 July 2015 (2 years 7 months 17 days ago)

During the last meeting of the Management Committee of the EU on the situation in the pig sector, data relating to the period from January to April were presented. According to this data, pork exports during the first four months of this year have reached about 934,810 tonnes which, compared to the same period last year, amounts to an increase of 6.1%.

The European Union is trying to compensate for the Russian embargo on exports, which began in February 2014 for pork, and will apparently be extended until at least August 2016. Until the beginning of the embargo, Russia was the main destination of pork exports from the EU. China, however, ranks now as their main destination, with a cumulative total of 294,740 tonnes in January-April, equivalent to a 31.5% of the total market share, and an increase of 36% over the same period last year. The second destination for EU pork exports is South Korea, with 88,227 tonnes and an increase of 40%, followed by Japan with 86,303 tonnes, although in this case exports to that country fell by 13%, as did exports to Hong Kong, which fell by 33%.
