VELEZ-GUZMAN, E. A.; GARCIA-HENAO, G. A.  e  BARRIOS, D.. Exploratory study about production and commercialization of pork meat in the Aburrá Valley, Antioquia (Colombia). Rev. Med. Vet. Zoot. [online]. 2018, vol.65, n.3, pp.220-234. ISSN 0120-2952.

Pork agribusiness has greatly increased at the province and national level in recent years. The productive chain includes input suppliers, farmers, animal re-sellers, abattoirs, meat packers, wholesale traders, retailers, and consumers. This study described the market agents that interact along this productive chain, and quantified the pork-marketing shares in Aburrá Valley, Antioquia province (Colombia). A convenience sampling was used in this study. A survey was applied to 30 producers and a semi-structured interview to five marketing agents. Two main marketing circuits were found: producer-meat vendor, and producer-broker-meat vendor. The prices paid to the agents that interact in the pork meat circuit in the Aburrá Valley show an upward trend. The price paid by the final consumer to the meat vendor grows in greater proportion than the prices paid to the brokers and to the primary producer.
