The analysis gives an overview of past trends related to current level of organization of players, investment in business, production, consumption, key actors and policy framework that influence supply, the demand and marketing of pork, pork products and value addition options. As a matter of emphasis on the specifics of the study, the current status and the future directions of the industry and the underlying challenges and opportunities by different actors in the pig production value chains and investment options were captured at different levels of the value chain.
