China’s imports of whey increase significantly as pork production bounces back

New edition of Dairy Products China News featuring: Falling pork prices, China’s 3rd-child policy and draft raw milk standards

Despite the huge losses suffered as a result of African Swine Fever, Chinese pork production continues to bounce back and drive huge demand for imports of whey. In fact, pork production in 2021 looks set to reach more than 49 million tonnes, with the number of large-scale pork farms having increased by 18,000 last year to reach 178,000, according to figures released by China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

Yet, although sow numbers are up, growth has slowed, with the average price of domestic pork falling for 20 consecutive weeks, reveals Richard Field in this month’s Dairy Products China News.
