In addition, combined sales pork loin medallions, fillet medallions, whole fillet and loin steaks were up 8% in September and October, compared to the same period in 2016.

AHDB launched its Midweek Meal campaign in September, with the aim of inspiring consumers to make pork part of their midweek meal menu. It is a key part of AHDB’s three-year strategy to rejuvenate the image of pork, initially focusing on pork loin medallions and pork fillet as perfect for quick, easy, tasty meal solutions which can be prepared in under 30 minutes.
