Total pork production in 2012 is projected up by two percent to 1.28 million MT (or total slaughter of 16.6 million heads) rebounding from the decline that was forecasted for the previous year, reflecting the rebuilding of sow inventories in major swine production regions, namely Kyushu, Kanto, and Tohoku, where 60 percent of the nation’s hogs are raised.

However, in 2012, this anticipated increase of domestic pork supply is expected to curtail imports, which is projected down by one percent from the previous year to 1.222 million MT (Pork Cuts: down by one percent to one million MT and Prepared/Processed Products: unchanged at 221,000 MT).
