According to AHDB, based on HCRM data, although China remained the largest destination for British pork, the amount shipped in March fell by 6% year on year to 3,900 tonnes. Likewise, exports to the UK’s fifth largest destination, the Netherlands, fell by 10% on the year to 1,400 tonnes. Nevertheless in March, the UK exported 7% more pork to both Ireland (at 3,200 tonnes) and Denmark (at 2,700 tonnes) and 6% more to Germany (at 3,000 tonnes), compared to the same period in 2016.

Imports of fresh/frozen pork increased once again on the year in March, by 47%, to 44,500 tonnes. Similar to recent months the majority of the increase came from a 125% rise in shipments from Denmark to 18,300 tonnes. Doubts remain though over the validity of the rise, as Danish export figures have not been portraying the same trend. However, volumes imported from Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Ireland all rose.
