A promotional campaign launched by the Council of Agriculture (COA) to stimulate sales of locally produced pork kicked off last week, with discounts of 20 percent being offered on frozen products following the decline of wholesale prices.

A total of 50 supermarkets run by agriculture associations in the cities and counties of Kaohsiung, Pingtung, Penghu, Kinmen and New Taipei are participating in the sale of frozen pork products, said COA Minister Chen Bao-ji.

The council plans to review the campaign, which is aimed at bringing down retail prices, every two weeks and see whether the sales need to be expanded, the minister added.

In order to stabilize pork prices, the department has proposed that 60,000 pigs be slaughtered between May and July, but swine farmers say the number should be raised to 100,000, Hsu said.
