According to the ICEX's report on the cured ham market in the United Kingdom, in year 2014 the UK imported 352,436 tonnes of cured ham, amounting to ₤1,220 million (some €1,700 million): 66% of these imports were deboned cured hams, 31% cured saussages and other products, and the remaining 3% non-deboned cured ham.

The United Kingdom is the second most important European market in terms of the importation of gourmet products. The consumption of this kind of products has settled recently, and products such as Prosciutto di Parma and Spanish cured ham (both Serrano and Iberian) are familiar to the British consumer. The reasons for this increase are linked to the high immigration rate in the UK, the presentation of the product in more attractive packages (sliced and vacuum-packaged products), and the expansion of Spanish restaurant businesses with Spanish chefs and restaurants slowly entering the UK.
