This report was created for strategic planners, international marketing executives and import/export managers who are concerned with the market for fresh, chilled, or frozen pork in Oceana. With the globalization of this market, managers can no longer be contented with a local view. Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics that appear several years after the fact. I have developed a methodology, based on macroeconomic and trade models, to estimate the market for fresh, chilled, or frozen pork for those countries serving Oceana via exports or supplying from Oceana via imports. We do so for the current year based on a variety of key historical indicators and econometric models.
