Sweden has a very healthy and growing wild boar population. The Swedish forests offer a highly diversified dinner plate for this selective omnivore.
They are further spared from the African Swine Flu that has affected most the rest of the world's wild boar, since the disease doesn't exist in Sweden.
All wild boar meat must also be inspected by a veterinarian before its sold to ensure that it's free from any parasites. This ensures that Swedish wild boar meat is held at the highest quality. Hunting season for wild boar is almost all year around which means that there is significant opportunity to acquire the meat fresh (never frozen).
The wild boar is a very timid animal that is seldom seen during the day. A male wild boar can reach a weight of 250 kg.
