Generally it comes from an imbalance between the supply and demand (which happened in the years 1992 and 1996, for example), the supplies market crisis and sanitary problems, as occurred in the late of 1970 and the early of 1980. The activity dropped again due a big crisis during the period 2002 and 2003, least in terms of the primary production. This fact was repeated on 2006 and 2007. In all those cases, lack of information has been a essential factor, since most of the crises was associated to the excess supply of pork meat on the market.
