Kurobuta is a grade of premium quality pork known to the native Japanese, although the fact that all Kurobuta porks are gotten from Berkshire pigs does not mean they all qualify as Kurobuta grade. Unlike the standard pork, you’re familiar with, the Kurobuta Pork has a darker colour variation, tending towards purple with soft white fat and richer taste. The kurobuta pig is covered in black hair, hence the name Kurobuta meaning black pig.
It’s important to understand that Pigs that are raised in Japan produce the Real Kurobuta Pork, although there have been contrary reports from producers in Australia, United States, and the UK. A lot centers around the production of pork, and this starts with the management system, breeding, and feeding.
In Japan, most Kurobata is produced in Kyushu.
