Danish pig meat exports (including offal) in the first quarter of 2019 declined by 8% to 337,000 tonnes.

Declines have come from fresh pork and offal exports.

Exports to Germany, Denmark’s top market, have recorded a 22% decline during the period.

Pig meat imports also declined over Q1 as a whole, by 4% to total 44,000 tonnes.

However this can be attributed almost solely to January, when less German product came to Denmark.

Imports in February and March have grown year on year, with deliveries from Poland and Germany both increasing year on year.
