Traditionally, Denmark has been the leading EU exporter of pork to third country markets. However, in 2015 it was overtaken by both Germany and Spain, according to AHDB Pork.
All three countries shipped over 300,000 tonnes of pork outside the EU during the year, accounting for 60% of EU pork exports between them, up from just over half two years before. Germany and Spain recorded increases in non-EU sales of 23% and 30% respectively during the year, while Danish exports rose by just 4%; overall EU exports were up 11%. Third country markets accounted for nearly 30% of Spanish and Danish exports but only 20% for Germany.
