Welsh Pigs Bringing Home The Bacon

01 March 2017

Pork from traditionally reared Pedigree Welsh Pigs has been awarded special status from the European Commission. Becoming the first of its kind in Wales, the pork has been granted Traditional Specialities Guaranteed (TSG) status.

The new status means that pedigree Welsh pork can be produced anywhere in Europe, as long as the animals are pedigree and registered with the British Pig Association or similar.

Producers that use the TSG designation are encouraged to join the Pedigree Welsh Pig Society, who can offer help and support and help ensure that the traditional methods and high standards are kept.
