The Danish pig meat production has for more than 100 years, had a great share of Danish export of goods. Within the last 10 years, the export of Danish piglets and finisher pig for slaughtering has exploded on the expense of Danish jobs. This contributes to the Danish pig meat sector being topic for much debate together with environmental concerns, the use of antibiotics and poor animal welfare. Since Denmark is a member of the European Union, the national pig meat sector is affected by European policy and other EU member states.
The present study investigates stakeholder’s position on the Danish pig meat sector and agricultural sustainability by conducting seven semi-structured interviews. This study is conducted from a multi-level governance perspective, why stakeholders from both the supranational level of EU and the national level of Denmark has been participating in stakeholder analysis processed by the use of meaning condensation.
From the analysis of the stakeholder interviews conducted in this study the investigation showed that there are great differences in stakeholder’s position on the Danish pig meat sector and agricultural sustainability both between vertical and horizontal levels of the European governance system.
