Provenance and Profit: a strategy for Scotland's pig industry

The pig sector is important to Scotland, and its value is increasing strongly.

Overall sector output in 2017 was almost £260m, up from around £200m the previous year on the back of strong global trade.

Our ambition for 2030 is to double the value of the sector, bringing total sector output to over £500m. This will mainly be achieved by undertaking more Scottish slaughter and processing of pigs already born here, rather than by simply expanding breeding sow numbers. Through this, we’ll increase domestic value added and exports.
