The pig industry in the US and Canada continues to feel the effects of Covid-19 and the pressure on packing plants. European pig processing plants also feel the effects of the virus more strongly.
For various reasons, Covid-19 has severely disrupted the US pig industry. On the one hand, various packing and processing plants throughout the country had to temporarily close its doors due to Covid-19 outbreaks among plant staff. On the other, some plants face delivery difficulties because for instance restaurants or the food service business had to close down.
