Increasing EU pork exports to Asia: South Korea, Phlippinen

EU pork exports to South Korea and Philippines doubles 2014

In addition to Japan and China, the Philippines and South Korea win a growing importance for de Schweinefleisch export of the EU. Alone in the year 2014 exports in both countries have increased along more 200,000 t and 100%, respectively. A rising consumption is observed in both countries, which can not be covered with the help of own generation. It is interesting to also note that the European imports displace imports from other countries. Apart from similarities there are also considerable differences between the two regions.

With approximately 50 million people, South Korea's population is one of the world's 15 largest industrial countries. The economic boom has resulted in a country escape, so that today only 3% of the gross national product in agriculture will be generated.

A rapid collapse took place in the South Korean pigs . In the year 2000, there were 24,000 persistent pig farms, which has fallen over the years 2014 to 5,000 now. The number of pigs has grown from 5 to 9 million units. The backyard farming disappears in the increasingly favour industrial units. But South Korea's pig heavily suffers from all possible disease outbreaks. The foot - and -mouth disease leads to 10 to 30% reductions of the herds and the supply of meat for the umpteenth time.

With steadily increasing pork consumption with currently about 32 kg per head , the supply with the help of imports must be secured. Suppliers are among other things the United States and Chile.  The supplies from the EU reach half of the total Korean imports of pork thanks to the weak euro exchange rate now. The import volume from the EU have grown at 213,000 tonnes in the year 2014, a 108% increase over the previous year.  

The Philippines with its 2,000 inhabited islands are home to 96 million people, but 8 million of them are employed abroad continuously somewhere. The Pro Lopf consumption of pork meat is still improved with approx. 16.5 kg.

The pork production in the country is little concentrated according to the scattered location. The supply of large cities is usually carried out by outside on the sea. This favors imports from the United States, Canada and the EU.

In the year 2014, which reached pork supplies of the EU almost 200,000 t, corresponding to an increase of 96% to the previous year.  The United States pushed out due to the PED disease problem and the strong U.S. dollar most of the Philippine imports.

High EU exports of pork to the Philippine Islands with a weak support will be sustained for the year 2015 euro expected.
