U.S. pork exports could outpace both chicken and beef shipments in the coming decade.

U.S. pork exports could outpace both chicken and beef shipments in the coming decade.

In the USDA’s long term projection data, all volumes of U.S. meat exports are expected to grow through 2033. By the year 2028, pork exports are set to pass exports for broiler chickens for the first time since 1976. This is due to steady growth in U.S. production and new environmental policies in the European Union that could reduce the growth of the EU’s exports. By the year 2033, U.S. pork exports are predicted to increase 34% to more than nine billion pounds.
