Dunkin Pork Donuts
March 6, 2012 by staff
Dunkin Pork Donuts, Here’s another agricultural news item about about China worth keeping an eye on; Dunkin Donuts has announced that it will use NBA star LeBron James to push its planned line of pork donuts in China.
The U.S. isn’t considered ready for pork-laced donuts (although the recent introduction of the Bacon Shake by Jack In The Box may pave the way) the huge Chinese market is considered prime for the combination of pork and donut.
Yahoo Sports reported the huge deal with James on Monday. Reuters noted that Dunkin Donuts has 5,400 outlets in the Asia-Pacific region, in what will be the world’s second-largest consumer market.
Exactly what impact this could have on pork production and demand is uncertain at this point except that China is already the world’s largest producer and consumer of pork. With a herd of 450 million animals (eight times larger than the U.S. hog herd), China has a huge appetite for livestock feed.
Farmers and corn traders in the U.S. have looked longingly at China in recent years. While China is a big buyer of U.S. soybeans – as demonstrated by the recent signing of another soybean purchase during the recent visit by China’s vice president Xi Jinping – the country is a small factor in U.S. corn exports.
