Smithfield trophy for Don Curry
By FWi staff
MEAT and Livestock Commission chairman Don Curry has won the Royal Smithfield Club Bicentenary Trophy for his contribution to the livestock industry.
Mr Curry, one of five finalists, was presented with the award at a gala dinner at the Honourable Artillery Company Hall, London, on Saturday (2 December).
He receives for one year the Royal Smithfield Clubs inaugural Bicentenary Perpetual Trophy, which consists of an armada dish set with 25 golden guineas.
The judges said Mr Curry had done the most to put the “great” back into Great British meat and contributed significantly to the meat livestock industry.
Other shortlisted candidates included the directors of Farmers Ferry; Ian Galloway of Scotbeef; and Richard Sadler, chief meat buyer for Waitrose.
Nigel Scollan, a senior research scientist with the Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research, was also in contention.
