In 2018, in France, the European pork imports (99% of the total) grew by 2.5% in terms of volume, but decreased by 2.8% in terms of price. France slightly reduced its purchases from Spain (-1%), but strengthened its trade with Italy (+17%).

In 2018, in France, the pork exports decreased slightly in terms of volume (- 5,000 tonnes in carcass weight). The flows towards the EU (that represent most of the trade) increased slightly, but those towards third countries decreased. In the first half of 2018, the French exports grew before strongly decreasing during the second half of the year (-20% in September and -9% in the last two months of 2018). The drop must be contextualised, bearing in mind the exceptional level of the sales to Italy in the last four months of 2017 (7,000 tonnes in carcass weight more than in the same period in 2018), thanks to a high production in France in the second half of 2017. Like in 2017, Italy (France's main client) was the destination with the greatest growth in sales in the European market (+ 5.7% year-to-year, +4.7% in the average year-to-year growth from 2015 to 2017). Among the third countries, China still is the main market, and in spite of the slight drop in 2018 (-2.3% year-to-year), most of the flows with this country have remained intact since 2016. Also, The Philippines, the seventh destination of French pork exports, continued increasing its purchases (+ 5% year-on-year).
