Despite the ministry of agriculture’s efforts to work with farmers so as to produce more piglets to meet the country’s demand for pork, there was still a shortfall of about 1.713 metric tonnes last year.

Minister of Agriculture Clement Dlamini attributed the shortfall to the lack of piglets and few farmers in pork production. He said farmers would need more piglets so that pork production in the country meets the required demand.

He said the country imports 1 713 metric tonnes of pork per year while only 444 metric tonnes were produced locally.
