Canadian pork exports to U.S. surge

The United States imports of pork surged by 43 per cent over the first half of this year, most of it from Canada.

But the strong U.S. dollar and pork demand also brought imports from Denmark, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Spain and Finland.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said pork imports are remaining high in July and August and forecasts the year will end with a 32 per cent increase over last year.
