INTERPORC promotes a plan with 8 strategic lines to address the future challenges of the pig sector

The Interprofesional del Porcino de Capa Blanca (INTERPORC) has drawn up a Porcine Sector Strategic Plan, in which it defines 8 strategic lines with which to address future challenges that arise.



The document has been presented by Alberto Herranz, along with Pedro Rodrigo and Miguel Sabater, heads of Deloitte’s Future of Food initiative, and is intended to be a roadmap that “mitigates the impacts the sector faces and prepares us for compete in the new scenario that is coming”.

A scenario that, as explained by the director of INTERPORC, is marked by the change in trend experienced in 2022, after a period of sustained growth over the last decade (+4% per year between 2010-21). In the last year, we have witnessed a significant increase in production costs and the consequent decrease in production, derived, among other things, from the war in Ukraine and the consequent difficulties in international trade or the supply of raw materials.

But also, he added, “we are facing two major challenges: the new regulatory requirements in terms of animal welfare and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; and the increase in the global competitive intensity of other export markets”. The Porcine Sector Strategic Plan “requires the active involvement of all sectoral agents for its successful achievement, as well as implementing a set of critical initiatives at individual and sectoral level”.

8 strategic lines, 22 initiatives

  • The Pig Sector Strategic Plan specifies 8 strategic lines:
  • Enhance the image and reputation of the sector
  • Strengthen biosafety policies
  • Promote the development of high-value products and markets
  • Transform the configuration of the value chain towards a more competitive, sustainable and resilient model
  • Attract, develop and retain the necessary talent
  • Activate investment in R+D+i in sustainability and product
  • Promote the circular economy throughout the value chain and promote new sources of business for the sector in the future.

Together with these 8 objectives, “22 independent initiatives, executable and transversal to the entire sector” are also defined, which allow it to be developed
