Report Synopsis

The possibilities to be the chain manager as pig farmer

Ruben van Boekel

I have connected a theme to every country I have visited. I have visited Italy mainly because their traditions in cured ham and cheese. Brazil because of the many farmers’ cooperatives, Japan because of their high food standards. I found the United Kingdom really interesting because of the many local products they sell and the outdoor pigs. In Spain I hoped to be even more inspired by the internationally emerging Serrano and Ibérico hams. In every country I have visited agricultural entrepreneurs who belonged to the top of the bill. I have visited many pig farmers, but as well many other agricultural sectors.
