The Swiss are increasingly eating German “Schwiinigs”

The corona outbreaks in the major butcher’s shop Tönnies are still present to everyone. Hundreds of Eastern European butchers were also infected in other German slaughterhouses. The reason: They live in precarious conditions, share a room and the sanitary facilities. Conditions in which the coronavirus could spread quickly.

And yet: German pork is in great demand in Switzerland. Import numbers soared this year, reports the “SonntagsZeitung”. It was around 5300 tons in the first nine months. Of this, 4400 tons came from Germany. Compared to the same period in the previous year, the increase in German products is 34 percent, and compared to the same period in 2018, almost ten times as much German pork was imported.
