According to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), about 4,958 metric tons, or nearly 5 million kilograms of meat was produced in 2016, with pork in the lead. This translates as to how much pork Filipinos consume, almost on the daily, and how high the demand is for the commodity.
Most Filipino dishes such as adobo, sinigang, and menudo have pork as a key ingredient in them. This shows how Filipinos love consuming the protein and gives aspiring pig raisers a glimpse of how large the demand is for the meat.
Venturing into pig farming can be a profitable business due to the high demand of pork in the market. Yet it requires the right know-how along with the necessities in terms of housing, food, and such to make the operation work.
