USA: Smithfield is exporting the stink to Poland and Romania

In the next five years, Smithfield Foods plans to nearly double its sow herd in Poland, moving from 61,000 to 120,000 head. If the company accomplishes this, it will produce about 2 million hogs in the country, according to the company's annual report.

In nearby Romania, Smithfield wants to increase its annual pig production to 3.6 million and increase its breeding herd from 32,000 to 200,000 head.
