The Ever-Expanding Pork Market

Undoubtedly, the pork industry is still recovering financially and structurally from chaos over the last two years. However, many economists are confident the industry will see an increased recovery this year and beyond.

The pandemic forced us to address industry oversights, prompting the need for quick-to-action agile strategies and solutions. However, there are still many challenges to be overcome. 

In South Africa, structural drivers such as skilled labour shortages and a higher cost of living are due to inflation. The recent hike in the repo rate has exacerbated the strain on the supply chain, with everything from animal feed to transport and wages weighing heavily on pork meat distributors and producers.


The main drivers of change for pork suppliers in 2022 and beyond should be focused on:

  • Risk management.
  • Be prepared to make the best of the situation by maximising pricing opportunities and minimising losses. 
  • Consider all tools and strategies available to accomplish price risk management goals.
  • Hike in prices of hog feed and fertiliser.
  • Be prepared for disruption. Planning and risk management can limit the severity of their impact on your operations.

The reality of the situation is that all of the abovementioned points are subject to supply and demand. Currently, the demand in the pork market is still significant; therefore, it’s up to suppliers to find innovative ways to combat the challenges that lie ahead and capitalise on an expanding pork market.

This is the exact approach we take at Van Wyngaardt.
