State secretary for agriculture and rural development Zsolt Feldman told: in 2020 the government gave an extra HUF 1.2-billion funding to the sector because of the pandemic, plus they finance more than 100 development projects with HUF 77 billion. Hungary’s per capita pork consumption rose from 24-25kg to more than 30kg since 2013. //
