THE VOICE OF THE UK PIG INDUSTRY

NPA is active on members' behalf in Brussels & Whitehall, and with processors, supermarkets & caterers - fighting for the growth and pros-perity of the UK pig industry.

Currently, he pointed out, environmental directives from Brussels are being dealt with piecemeal, to the detriment of the pig industry.

His concept of developing a pig environment strategy – which he first put to environment minister Ian Pearson several weeks ago - was welcomed by Defra and also by Environment Agency chief executive Barbara Young.

He is keen to see a meeting of all relevant parties before Christmas.
