The Swine Industry

The Peninsular part of the country has seen a drop in self-sufficiency to 90.25 percent in the supply of pig meat in 2017. In 2018 there were 501 farms in operation carrying a swine population of 1,447,511 heads. Many small farms are closing down due to viability and environmental factors but the bigger farms have expanded their production capacity.  The shortfall in supply is being met with imports of frozen pork cuts mostly from neighboring countries.

 

Pig meat is mostly consumed as fresh unprocessed pork.

 

The swine industry will continue to operate in an increasingly difficult farming environment due to urbanization and is still trying to persuade the government to support the development of Pig Farming Areas (PFAs) and in situ development of existing environment friendly farms as PFAs.
