In Sweden, 32.4 kg of pork was consumed per person in 2018.1Approximately 75% of consumption is produced in Sweden, and imports come mainly from Denmark, Germany, Poland and the Netherlands.2 About 2% of Swedish production is organic pork.3 Contracting authorities that use sustainability criteria in their procurement of pork products can encourage better environmental sustainability in pork production and good animal welfare.
