The new rules may make it more difficult for Norwegian farmers to produce enough pork ribs in the future.

In an Agriculture report, the Government wants to liquidate the target price of pork meat, which will remove the possibility for so-called regulation export.

Both Nortura and Meat and Poultry Association (KLF) believes this could affect the production of Norwegian juleribbe (Christmas ribs), according to Nationen.

Since the demand for ribs is higher than other pork products, farmers export other surplus meat to produce enough ribs.

– Without being able to export we are unable to produce as much Norwegian ribs. Then there will be more imports. Should we be allowed to continue with exporting, there will be more Norwegian ribs available for Christmas, says Bjørn-Ole Juul-in KLF.
