Spain: Spanish Swine and Pork Production Driven Down by Lower Exports and Animal Welfare Regulations

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SP2023-0030

Spain’s swine sector expects a continued downward trend in swine and pork production in 2023 and 2024 to slightly less than 5 million tons of pork and below 55 million heads slaughtered. These reductions are driven by lower pork exports to non-EU markets, mainly to China, continued high input costs, and imposition of new EU regulations.
