Italy: Positive cured meat exports in the first half of 2022

The increase in energy and raw material prices, the associated escalation of inflation and export restrictions due to the presence of African swine fever in Italy have actually hindered the burden of meat enterprises. A task that became more and more difficult as the months passed and the situation worsened as production costs rose.

Exports of the meat sector, in terms of turnover, recorded a slower pace than those of the food industry (+22.2%). All main categories of salami, except mortadella and other cooked sausages, saw an increase.

In terms of geographical areas, both exports to the EU and those to third countries recorded a positive result, but growth was less vigorous due to ASF sanctions.

A decisive contribution to the export growth of third countries came from shipments to the USA which again recorded an excellent +25.6% in quantity and +30.9% in value.
