Europe (including UK, Germany, Belgium, France and The Netherlands) now produces clearly more boar meat. Does this have an effect on the appreciation and marketing of pork?
Consumer’s attitude of pork is rather stable. It remains the most consumed type of meat and the increase in the amount of boar meat has no – negative – impact on the valuation and consumption.
