Danish organic prospects promising' Commercial prospects for organic pork suppliers appear bright to the Danish National Committee for Pig Production. "The export markets for organic pork are looking very promising and the organic slaughterhouses are advertising for more suppliers," according to the committee's latest annual report. It derides as myths the often heard claims that organic production is too costly and highly regulated for farmers and the output too expensive for consumers. Nevertheless some senior figures in the Danish industry have told The Grocer repeatedly they believe the market cannot sustain an organic price premium of more than about 10%, and this is not enough to justify the necessary investment in many units (in the UK as well as in Denmark). {{MEAT }}
