US pork imports also show a decrease but the gap seems to be filled by Canada, who has overcome the milestone of 10 thousand tonnes/quarter. "South Korean pork imports have been growing for the last five years, along with domestic production. Exports, although small in comparison, have dropped off significantly over the same time, together indicating that domestic demand is growing for pork", explained Hannah Clarke, Analyst at AHDB.
