UK to benefit from pork demand



The demand for pork in the world is going to increase in the coming years and the UK is well-positioned to gain from it, according to an analyst of the market intelligence section of the British Pig Executive (BPEX).


In his report, Market Trends and Outlook, Park pointed out the opportunities existing for the EU to export to countries such as Russia and the Far East.


On the domestic market, demand for pork has increased of late and, looking at slaughtering, there are expectations for numbers to tighten considerably.


BPEX head of supply chain development, Andrew Knowles, said, "There is a great deal of potential for exports outside the EU and the UK can take advantage of that.


"We have a very good reputation on the international scene in terms of the quality of our product and Britain is still an important player in selling breeding stock across the globe.
