Pig farming Export delegation to Piotrków Trybunalski in Poland, 24-26 April 2023

JOIN OUR EXPORT DELEGATION TO POLAND WITH FARM VISITS AND B2B MEETING!

The Polish meat sector is one of the largest within the EU, producing some of the most well-known products enjoyed by consumers across the globe. With a total production output in the range of €12.70 billion and an increased focus on technological and innovative solutions, the Polish meat sector is the optimum target for Danish AgriTech solutions. 

The trip will be held with Piotrków Trybunalski and a group of local pig producing stakeholders. They identify themselves as “Little Pig Denmark”, and were recently part of the Danish Trade Councils delegation that took part at Agromek in Denmark from 29 November to 2 December 2022. They have a strong focus in becoming more in improving their agricultural efficiency, including Danish knowledge in reducing antibiotics and the risk from ASF.

Market opportunities
Denmark is the main importer partner of live pigs in Poland, and Poland is now as of 2022 the fifth biggest importer in the EU. There is a big focus on increasing efficiency and strength of Poland’s agriculture and food processing, and this provides a great opportunity for Danish companies to share their technologies, knowledge and expertise. There is a good market for the Danish cluster of sustainable agriculture, agro intelligence, know-how and technological solutions, and working closely with the companies, but also local or provincial authorities, it is also expected to open doors for further export to Poland.

Pig production in Poland 
The Polish meat sector is one of the largest within the EU, producing some of the most well-known products enjoyed by consumers across the globe. With a total production output in the range of €12.70 billion and an increased focus on technological and innovative solutions, the Polish meat sector is the optimum target for Danish AgriTech solution.

The situation on the pig market - current pig prices: The situation for pig producers is gradually improving, though 2022 has like other EU countries been tough for the pig market. Admittedly, a lower supply of live pigs has been observed in the recent period, which has led to an increase in pig prices. 

2022 a difficult year for pig producers: The difficult situation on the pig market in 2022 was linked to the crisis after the COVID-19 pandemic, but also caused by the armed conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which led to an increase in the price of energy carriers affected the profitability of the pig production. 

The country's pig population fell to 9.6 million head. The number of sows remains at a record low of 600,000 head. The sector has had to bail out by importing piglets mainly from Denmark at around 6 million head per year. 

Forecasts for 2023: In the new year, one of the challenges is certainly to be dealing with ASF - which is significantly limiting the development of pig production not only in Poland, but in the whole of Europe.
