European Pork

Island Status

Since Ireland is an island on the periphery of Europe, this gives Irish pig producers a significant advantage around minimising disease risks.

This is underpinned by the fact Ireland has some of the most commercial pig units in Europe where they are raised on efficient, modern production facilities to the highest safety standards.

Another advantage for Irish pig producers is that Ireland does not have a wild boar population unlike many countries inwestern Europe.
