United Kingdom: pork origin testing stepped up

The focus to date has been on fresh pork in supermarkets. Last year, we extended it to bacon and pork used as a raw material in sausages and ham.

Isotope testing of pork and pork products for their origin is being stepped up by AHDB Pork from once a quarter to monthly.

Analysing the ratios of the four main stable isotopes contained in pork means the probability of the sample coming from the UK can be determined.

AHDB Pork strategy director Mick Sloyan said: “The focus to date has been on fresh pork in supermarkets. Last year, we extended it to bacon and pork used as a raw material in sausages and ham.”

“In the coming months, we will be focusing on high street butchers, a segment of the market we haven’t concentrated on in the past.”
