Detailed background data
It has been assumed that the food processing industry is located in Denmark. Basic mass balance from the Product Environmental Footprint Category 1 Rules Guidance (table 24), while distribution of fresh meat into different cuts is obtained from the US National Pork Board (Pork Checkoff). Inputs of water and energy from Blonk (2015). Minced meat, ham, neck, bacon and tenderloin are co-determining products. A change in demand for one of the co-products will adjust so that they have the same market trend. A change in demand for one of the co-products will affect the production volume of the multiple output process in proportion to its share in the gross margin of the co-product (Schmidt 2010). This is equivalent to the result of an economic allocation. Prices for all determining co-products have been obtained from Riverdog Farm (2020). Retail is modelled assuming the following storage: Cooled. See more details as well as literature references in the methodoly report on: www.denstoreklimadatabase.dk.
Data on inputs and outputs of the food processing industry is modelled using: No specific sources for this product. See comments field.
