International Pig Forum China (IPGC)

There has never been a time when China’s pig industry is so closely connected to the world. On one hand, the ups and downs of China’s pork imports has always been a sensitive issue for the leading producers and exporters around the world; on the other hand, the advanced development of the pig industries in Europe and the US has brought forth opportunities for improvement as well as more competitive pressure for China’s opening pig industry.

In the meantime, new technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) are emerging, bringing us tangible convenience while transforming the production methods of conventional agriculture, including the pig industry.

On consumers’ side, the change and upgrading of their demands is driving the industry steer away from focus on production to market, and efforts to create more added values. While there is still some need for the improvement of slaughtering and processing technologies, the change in the mindset of industry players may be more urgent.

How to better understand the landscape of the pig industry from a global perspective, embrace the smart technologies, follow the consumer trends and promote the synergetic development of the global pig industry? These are the issues that are to be discussed and answered at IPGC 2018.
