Terminology

The term ‘clean pigs’ describes animals that are young or castrated, as opposed to mature boars or sows used for breeding and that are slaughtered at the end of their production lives. Carcass weight refers to the weight of the body of the animal after various body parts are removed following the animal’s slaughter.

Pork retail

UK consumers bought roughly 157 thousand tons of fresh and frozen pork in the year ending in August 2018. Compared to a year earlier consumption dropped by roughly 3000 tons. Average purchases per consumer mirror this decrease and reveal a long-term downward trend.
