With shipments trending sharply higher to both Australia and New Zealand, January-March exports to Oceania climbed 151% from a year ago to 28,271 mt, with value up 139% to $101.8 million, according to data released by USDA and compiled by the US Meat Export Federation (USMEF).

Most US pork entering this region is raw material for further processing, and the US industry has been rapidly regaining market share from the European Union. 

Value-added processed products from the US have also gained popularity in Oceania.
