Commission grants special status to Welsh pigs

15th Feb 2017 / By Alistair Driver

Pork from traditionally reared Pedigree Welsh Pigs has been granted Traditional Specialities Guaranteed (TSG) status by the European Commission.

Unlike geographically specific protected foods, the new status applies to Pedigree Welsh Pork produced anywhere in Europe, providing the animals are pedigree and are registered with the British Pig Association or a similar breed association.
