During year 2012, Spain exported a total of 1,029,067 tonnes of pig meat, and this represents an increase by 5 % with respect to year 2011, and approximately 78% of the volume of meat from the main meat producing species exported by Spain, according to the last data published by the Observatori del Porcí (Pig Observatory).

On the other hand, the pig meat imports in Spain during year 2012 (81,193 t) dropped by 8.1% with respect to the previous year.

Regarding the Spanish foreign trade of pig products, exports (1,402,407 t) have followed the same upward trend than pig meat, and the importation of these products has followed a downward tendency (176,910 t). Although the main destination of the exports of pig products has been the EU-27 (75%), the exportation to third countries is on the rise. In fact, during year 2012, the exports to third countries have been the main factor that has made the global Spanish exports grow, especially the exports to Russia and China, which have increased by 17% and 42 %, respectively, in comparison with year 2011. France (23%), Portugal (15%), Italy (11%) and Germany (6%) are the main EU destinations of the Spanish exports, whilst Russia (8%) and China (5%) stand out as the main destinations outside of the EU.
