Slovenia urged the European Commission to help EU pork producers, saying the situation is worrying, Agriculture Minister Jože Podgoršek said on the sidelines of an EU ministerial.

Slovenian pork producers have suffered at least a 30% drop in revenue due extremely low prices, additional costs incurred because of African swine fever, and coronavirus-fuelled delays in some abattoirs, he said. The country’s appeal has been backed by 15 member states.
