Mexican pork production will rise by 4.2% in 2017 in comparison with 2016, so 1.4 million tonnes are expected to be produced this year, the General Livestock Coordinator of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA), Mr. Francisco Gurría Treviño, stated.

Also, the exports of Mexican pork rose by 9.5% in 2016 in comparison with 2015.

The six main pork producing states in Mexico are Jalisco, (265,217 tonnes), Sonora (234,639 tonnes), Puebla (166,947 tonnes), Yucatan (135,442 tonnes), Veracruz (122,329 tonnes), and Guanajuato (110,489 tonnes).

Mr Gurría Treviño announced that the promotional schemes for the diversification of markets will be strengthened with up to 20 million pesos, and reminded that last year, more than 432 thousand tonnes of pork were exported, in comparison with the 355 thousand tonnes exported in 2015, especially to Asian countries, like Japan, South Korea and China.

Likewise, in the domestic market, there will be an encouragement for the generation of a better information and its greater spreading in the fields of production, sales and consumption of certified pork regarding its quality and harmlessness, as it is highly nutritious, and it is a highly demanded animal protein at the reach of everybody.

Currently, the annual consumption per capita is 16.3 kg, and it is expected that the Mexican families can increase their animal protein intake through the consumption of this harmless food with high quality standards and produced by Mexicans.
