NPB: South America is a good market for U.S. pork

The National Pork Board says South America is a good market for U.S. pork.

The Board has been working with the Pork Producers Council and the Meat Export Federation to promote U.S. pork South of the border.

There is a large customer base that prefers pork, opening the potential for lucrative deals for U.S. producers. Right now, they are zeroing in on several countries in particular.

“Specifically, Colombia, Peru, and working to develop Chile. I would say the South American market is very much a developing market, although we have very strong sales, increasing values, and that consumption for pork can only continue to increase.”

The Pork Board says the marketing efforts will continue into 2023 and is paid for with check-off dollars.
