The production, sale and consumption of meat from uncastrated pigs naturally depends on the market demand. In Europe, a clear trend can be observed. Since time, the UK and Ireland have not castrated male pigs. In Spain, this applies to about 80% of the pigs. Two years ago Dutch supermarkets have agreed not to sell any meat from castrated pigs anymore. In Germany, France and Belgium more and more market parties switch towards boar meat. The offer, purchase and acceptance of meat from uncastrated pigs shows a clear growth.
