High demand for pork in Norway



An unusual rise of pork has been seen in Norway as the surging demand has been met with the help of imported frozen meat as part of the World Trade Organization quota.


However, authorities fear that domestic production will not be able to meet the demand as even frozen stocks are starting to run dry.


The Norwegian government has therefore declared a tariff reduction on all imported pork meat between June 11 and July 8 this year to comply with the increasing local requirement for pork.
