UK - Grain prices and risk management will be prime topics at this year's British Pig and Poultry Fair and are set to fuel new forum programme - the feed debate.

The debate, led by Fair partner ABN, promises lively discussion and will be held during the event at Stoneleigh, Warwickshire on 13 and 14 May 2008.

It will include views from industry experts and aims to help producers understand the volatility of the world feed market, along side the trends in consumer behaviour and rising food prices.

NFU advisor Robert Newbery believes that there is now an even greater need for efficient production, processing and distribution throughout the supply chain.

"This, coupled with clear communication and understanding of costs can result in a better price and, subsequently, profitability and a sustainable future.

"There has to be a greater understanding of the implications on the whole supply chain. If costs of production are not met, quality domestic product will not be available to the consumer in the future," he added.
