UK - The increasingly global nature of agriculture is placing huge pressure on the UK's intensive poultry and pig sectors, resulting in a significant rise in the level of imports. In the first 10 months of 2004, according to figures from Customs & Excise, imports of poultry meat totalled 317,347 tonnes, compared to 282,7049 tonnes in the same months of 2003 and 261,345 tonnes in 2002.
