UK pork production may drop 10% on high feed cost

 

 

UK pig farmers warned that pork production could fall by 10% due to the soaring cost of animal feed which is driving them out of business.

 

This could mean 1.5 million bacon rashers and 2.3 million sausages disappearing from shop shelves, with prices soaring.

 

National Pig Association boss Zoe Davies said: "We are asking shoppers to look for the British Red Tractor logo.

 

"If supermarkets see a surge in demand, they may be persuaded to pay our farmers more."
