The paper aimed to analyze the concentration of pig livestock and pork production in Romanai between 2007-2014 based on the empirical data provided by National Institute of Statistics. Pork production declined due to the continuous pig livestock decrease. Pig distribution is relatively uniform by micro region of development. The West region is in the top for the pig livestock and pork production. It is followed by South Muntenia and South East regions. In all the other regions, pork production declined. The lowest pork production is in Bucharest-Ilfov area. The values of Herfindahl-Hirschman Index varied between HHI=0.137 in 2007 and HHI= 0.154 in 2014, while the Gini-Struck coefficients ranged between GS=0.119 in 2007 and GS=0.159 in 2014, reflecting a good uniformity of production distribution but also a slight trend to a moderate uniformity to the end of the period. As long as domestic production is not enough to cover consumption, pig breeders should be supported to increase production, otherwise they will fail and imports will continue to cover market demand because of the overproduction in the Western countries.
