JAPAN - The ban of US beef in the Japanese market has led to a significant shift to pork consumption in Japan. Recently released figures reveal consumption of pork in Japan jumped 45% to an historically high level of 178,429 tonnes in April. Consumption of pork in Japan has increased dramatically since 2001 with both supply and demand of beef significantly impacted by BSE in both Japan and the US.
