Why you need to support local pork production
South Africa is renowned for its pigs’ genetic quality, which is regarded as a strength of the South African pork industry. This all begins with the quality of the input supply of the pig feed that is used.
Did you know that even though the pork sector is small compared to other animal production sectors in South Africa, it accounts for the consumption of approximately 10% of all feed produced in the country? This means that from a producer’s point of view, it’s the most critical aspect.
For the most part, producers can mix their own feed, but certain ingredients such as oilcake and fishmeal are imported due to their superior quality. The problem is that the sector is susceptible to volatile exchange rates, making it an expensive acquisition. Primary producers also have other variable costs such as fuel, electricity, wages, and cleaning materials, affecting profitability.
This is precisely why it’s so important for pork meat suppliers to source from local producers. It’s in the best interests of restaurants and retail stores to purchase pork products in bulk from local suppliers to ensure that the value chain remains as strong as possible.
The pressure associated with the input costs is immense. Some pork meat suppliers have resorted to cutting and packaging the meat themselves to cut costs; Van Wyngaardt is such a supplier. All pork products are cut to order, and the artisan butchers ensure the meat is of the highest quality.
The South African pork sector value chain from producer to supplier to commercial consumer must be protected. Hold the ‘Proudly South African’ motto up high and source your meat from reputable pork wholesalers.
