Hong Kong: Rising Export Opportunities for US Swine Breeding Stocks

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   HK2022-0011

To compete with live pig supplies from China, Hong Kong local farms are looking for quality breeding stock. The United States is one of their few preferred sources. In 2021, U.S. sales of live breeding pigs to this market grew eleven-fold to $494,000, the highest value since 2014. Hong Kong also became the sixth largest export destination for U.S. live breeding pigs. In addition, a few small farms in Hong Kong do breeding utilizing frozen genetics. Currently, there is also interest in sourcing genetics for large black pigs with lean meat.
