Caractérisation et analyse du secteur charcuterie-salaison européen

Abstract : The processed meat industry produces added value in the European Union, which makes it one of the key sectors of the pork industry in Europe. However, its organization is very different according to the country studied in this work: Germany, Spain and United-Kingdom. Spain is an exporter country specialized in dried meat, particularly in dried ham (21%) and its national market is saturated by several specialties. Its structural results are fairly good, particularly in the main companies. In the years to come, this country should continue to develop its production and its exports. Germany is the main processed meat producer and exporter (in quantity), with many regional recipes. Its financial results are not those expected with this leader status. The United-Kingdom has few companies, very concentrated and their results are correct. However, their production fails to respond to the total demand in pork processed meat (bacon and cooked ham particularly). Efforts on import reductions and favoring the use of British pigs are in progress. The key points of those models and the main lessons have been extracted of this sectorial analysis. It allows to situate France among its competitors, but not to create a typology of the countries according their strategies. However, in the light of the results, it appears that some models are more efficient than others, as the Spanish or the German one.
