The native breeds of pigs are those that grow in a certain region and / or country as local, autochthonous breeds. In Poland there are 3 breeds: Pulawska, Zlotnicka White and Zlotnicka Spotted pigs. The aim of work was to analyse the meat quality of Polish native breed of pigs. We performed chemical analysis of obtained samples as well as colour, shear force and thermal loss analysis. Highest fat content (%) were found in Zlotnicka Spotted while the lowest in Zlotnicka White. Highest L* value and thermal loss were found in Pulawska breed. Highest shear force value were found in Zlotnicka White and differ significantly compared to other breeds. The meat of Pulawska breed, produced for project BIOSTRATEG was characterized by better quality parameters in comparison to meat of fatteners of the same breed bought in a popular shop-network. The meat of Pulawska, Zlotnicka White and Spotted pigs is a good quality raw material which is used for production of traditional and regional meat products gaining high sensory scores and good recognition among consumers. Promotion of traditional products obtained from above breeds will favour the development of their breeding.
