According to BPEX, pork exports in the first 10 months of 2012 were 5% higher on the year at 127,100 tonnes, with offal increasing by a healthy 26% to 35,400 tonnes.

Sausage exports have been very successful, up 50% to 7,900 tonnes, while processed pork shipments were 26% higher at 10,100 tonnes. Meanwhile, exports of bacon and ham have more than halved during the period, from 28,000 to 13,600 tonnes. Most of this fall is due to a reduction in bacon traded to Ireland (-6,000 tonnes) and lower ‘returns’ to Denmark and the Netherlands (-6,900 tonnes). British bacon and ham exports to Germany, Italy, France and Spain also declined (-1,000 tonnes between the four destinations). Estonia, which had emerged as a valuable market, is also down from 370 to 225 tonnes. Despite these lower bacon exports, 2012 could see total pork product exports in the region of 235,000 tonnes, excluding fats, which could be a record for UK pork exports.
