The aim of the scheme is to help develop ideas which will benefit those taking part and bring an overall improvement to the British pig industry.

A total of 11 projects have been accepted in this round of the scheme, which has been running for four years. The successful projects included developing a local branded fresh pork supply, developing locally sourced production for butchers, farm shops and packers and creating a new range of products requested by customers.

BPEX Consumer Marketing Manager Chris Lamb said: "There are some exciting projects in this tranche of the grant scheme covering a wide range of ideas."The next tranche is due to be opened later in the year so there are still opportunities for people to apply.
