There is no part of the pig which is not eaten somewhere in the world, but each society has its own idea of which parts of the pig are good to eat.

While, here in Malta, it is no longer common for people to eat the brain, lungs, stomach and blood of a pig, these are all considered delicacies in other parts of the world. The same can be said for the trotters, snout and tongue.

Here in Malta, consumers most enjoy lean muscle tissue, commonly called ‘meat’. Our farmers are aware of this, as are the local processors and meat sellers; so this is what one sees most in the shops.
