Global demographics are rapidly changing. What might that mean for global pork and, more broadly food demand? Todd Thurman of President of Swine Insights International, shares his unique perspective.

April 12, 2024

Global demographics are rapidly changing. Global population is rapidly shifting. Countries like China are ramping up pork production. What about the aging of the population in general and how might that impact demand for pork products in the future? It is no longer about how we feed the world but rather what does the world want from us.

Hosts for this episode are Sarah Muirhead of Feedstuffs and Mark Huslebus of Alltech. Todd Thurman, President of Swine Insights International, joins as their guest. Thurman spends a lot of time in China and other international markets and shares a very insightful and unique perspective on the global pork industry and U.S. industry’s role in that global network.
