The Mexican supermarket chain Cargill announced on Monday that it will start selling beef and pork from its stores in the United States, with a new meat option for people who don’t want to pay for meat on their own.
In response to a growing demand from Mexican consumers, Cargil has announced that it plans to start selling pork from local farmers in Texas and New Mexico, and beef from Texas-based processors that produce meat from cattle.
Cargill said it will sell beef in the states, along with pork and chicken, and the meat from Texas processors.
The new product, dubbed “Porko” and made from pork, will cost about $3.95 a pound.

Cargils new porko option, however, is aimed at a broader audience.
In Mexico, the price of beef, pork, chicken and pork products have dropped sharply in recent months, and many meat shops are now selling at a discount.
However, it’s not just beef prices that are down.
The prices of pork products, including the beef, have also dropped significantly, said Ricardo Lopez, an economist at the University of the Andes in Mexico City.
The price of pork has dropped by 80 percent in Mexico since 2006, and has been falling for a decade.
Lopez said it was unclear how many Mexicans would be willing to pay more for beef.
Mexican food is typically cheap and not expensive to eat.
“We don’t see many Mexicans who are willing to take that risk,” he said.
But if you want a cheaper alternative to beef, there are plenty of options.
Mexican cuisine has been shifting toward local ingredients, which often include pork, lamb, and goat.
In many places, like Ciudad Juarez, where Cargills flagship store is located, beef is the only meat option, Lopez said.
Calf is also available, but the meat is typically priced at about $6 a pound, he said, noting that some people will eat the meat without a reservation.
“We’re very open to alternatives,” Lopez said, adding that Cargilli has not yet decided which of its products would be offered in each state.
