The British Goose Producers (BGP) association will be celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
The BGP was formed in the early 1980s by a group of farmers at Crick, Northampton, to promote goose production.
As part of the celebrations, the BGP will be holding a commemorative Michaelmas lunch in September, and the association has also introduced an anniversary logo (see below).
Judy Goodman, BGP chairman, said: “We’d like to make this a really memorable year, not just to celebrate the success of the goose today, but as a tribute to the foresight, enthusiasm and devotion of our founder John Adlard. Without his efforts the goose would certainly not be enjoying its wave of popularity today.”
