INDUSTRY leaders have agreed on a six-point action plan for the pig industry over the next decade.
The plan was agreed at a two-day Pig Industry Summit opened by agriculture minister Nick Brown.
The summit – was organised by the British Pig Association, the Meat and Livestock Commission and the NFU – was attended by producers, processors and retailers.
During the summit the challenges and opportunities facing the pig industry were discussed and key points made for specific and collective action.
Summit chairman, Professor Norman Coward, said that the event had been a unique and valuable event.
“It was very encouraging that key leaders came together and agreed concrete action to take a troubled industry forward.”
