Effects of fermented food waste feeds on meat quality and physico-chemical characteristics of fully grown pigs were investigated. Two treatments were tried in this study; commercial feed (control) and fermented food waste feed(FFWF). Except for much thicker backfat of control, carcass traits, carcass weight, dressing percentage, carcass grade, cooking loss, shear force, water-holding capacity, drip loss, NPPC meat color, and marbling score of commercial feed(control)- and fermented food waste feed (FFWF)-fed pigs were not significantly different. Primal cut weights and meat percentages were significantly different (p<0.05) between control and FFWF. pH of FFWF loin was significantly lower (p<0.05) than that of control. FFWF loin showed higher L*-value and lower a*-value compared to control.
