 Falling Production of Bacon and Pork Likely to Lead to Shortage Next Year

Pork and bacon lovers around the globe are facing severe shortage next year after a British trade association warned that a global shortage was "unavoidable".

Annual production for Europe's main pig producers fell across the board between 2011 and 2012, a trend that 'is being mirrored around the world', Britain's National Pig Association warned.

The announcement by the National Pig Association is the latest warning of a global problem facing the industry and pork lovers everywhere.

According to the Daily Mail, the decline in pig numbers is closely linked to increased feed costs, an effect of poor harvests for corn and soybeans.

The decline in production could be worse in Europe. British Pig Executive Mick Sloyan told European retailers that pork losses could be as high 10 percent in the latter half of 2013, which could double pork prices.

All the evidence predicts that in 2013, there will be far fewer pigs around to satisfy the nation's appetite for those irresistibly salty, succulently fatty strips.

Last month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture warned that the 'Summer' drought in the Midwest would impact next year's pork production.
