US pork exports to Mexico continue to climb - USMEF

US pork exports posted another strong performance in October, led by record-large shipments to Mexico and broad-based growth elsewhere, according to data released by USDA and compiled by the US Meat Export Federation (USMEF). 

October pork exports totalled 245,345 metric tons (mt), up 3% year-over-year and the largest since June, valued at $688.2 million – down 2% from a year ago. For the first 10 months of 2023, pork exports increased 9% from a year ago to 2.38 million mt, with value up 6% to $6.66 billion.

“At a time when the US pork industry needs to maximise revenue, I run out of superlatives when talking about the remarkable demand we are seeing in Mexico,” said USMEF president and CEO Dan Halstrom. “Pork exports are also achieving excellent growth across the Western Hemisphere and retaking market share in the Asia-Pacific.”
