Default Oink in Al Ain

Is it available in any of the shops or do I need a road trip to AD / Dubai?

Souq planet near Tawam
Spinneys in the centre of town (but not Al Bateen branch).

These days Pork is readily available in Abu Dhabi. Usually in big supermarkets like Spinneys you will notice the sign
" caution pork products"
