‘Porky Brits now fatter than pigs’?
The Sunday Times published a front-page story written by science editor Jonathan Leake which read – While Britain’s have been getting heavier, pigs are no longer as fat. It may one day become a compliment to be told “You are as thin as a pig” 
In this podcast John Bates addresses how and why the fat levels in UK pork have dropped as new research has revealed, in the first official testing for nearly 30 years. With the support of our AHDB specialists and PHE, we find out in-depth information on how this new change benefits our UK pork levy payers.
