This study attempts to analyse the performance of the University for Development Studies Meats Limited (UDSML) which adapts formal value chain in such a way that it caters for public health, consumer demand and improves producer livelihood and to propose the opportunities available in the informal sector to enhance development of the pork value chain in the Tamale Metropolitan Area. Tamale, the capital of the Northern region of Ghana is known to be the food basket in the country. The importance of food safety and quality of pork has brought about the establishment of the UDSML in the Tamale Metropolis. Unfortunately, pig producers and middlemen in the metropolis prefer selling pig through the informal chain; without regarding the measures of safety and quality of meat. It is against this background that this study was done to find the reasons why producers prefer selling through to a particular buyer in the pork value chain.
