The pork sector recovered quickly from April's H1N1 epidemic. Pork production for 2009 have fallen by only 0.6% y-o-y.

This is an impressive outturn given the falls in production in the middle of the year following the flu scare. Pork consumption has also recovered quickly, helped by the low price for pork after the outbreak which drew in value-conscious consumers in a recension year. The recovery from what at first looked to be a major blow to the sector was greatly helped by prompt government action to allay fears about the health risks of pork consumption and to provide aid to farmers hit by the crisis. The forecast for pork production in 2010 is to return to positive growth.
