We have just published our latest outlook for the UK pig meat market, where we explore our forecasts for slaughter, consumption and trade for 2021.
This forms part of our wider Agri-market outlook, which includes short and long-term outlooks for the other farming sectors that AHDB covers as well as farm inputs.
Key points from the latest pig outlook include:
- UK pig meat production growth expected to be slower in the second half of 2021
- Exports remain challenging, with Chinese demand slowing and some friction supplying the EU
- Higher production and lower exports boost domestic supply availability and should restrain import levels
- Demand remains strong, but volumes increasingly moving through foodservice rather than retail, which may be less beneficial for British producers
