The pork industry provides an important source of food and nutrition worldwide, but many people don’t realize just how far porcine products can benefit their daily lives other than a delicious meal. The porcine materials harvested and created in the making of meat products highly impact the health and wellness of humans and other animals.
Sustainability is a key issue here. If pigs were only harvested for the products you see at the grocery store, there would be about 40 – 50% wasted materials. However, sustainable harvesting practices in the pork industry make use of the entire animal, and the uses of porcine tissue are astounding. With responsible farming practices, all parts of an animal have a use and value.
Benefits of Porcine Tissue
To list every field and industry that benefits from porcine materials or the products made that use porcine tissue would be too exhaustive. Just know that a single pig can be used to make over 150 different products that increase the quality of life for millions of people and animals around the world. The most common uses of porcine material benefit many fields and industries such as:
- Biomedical research
- Animal feed science and technology
- Life sciences
Each industry has specific uses for porcine tissue, but all can benefit from the high-quality porcine tissue we are able to source.
