Pig industry takes its case
to the suppliers

SCOTLANDS pig farmers are approaching retailers and fast-food suppliers in the hope of convincing them to buy locally-produced pork.

Andrew Piddie, the convener of the pigs committee of the National Farmers Union of Scotland, visited the Granada Services motorway station at Kinross.
