This increase is due partly to the increase in deliveries to Russia and China. The volume of exportations to Russia rose by almost 20%. Delivery to other EU countries was maintained at 1,8 million tons, with 75% of the total exportations.
On the other hand, the importation of pork decreased by around 2% with a total of 1,2 million tons. The main provider countries were Denmark, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
