UK - Pig producers with a 'big idea' they'd like to put into practice shoudl talk to BPEX Ltd - and fast? Producers and processors have got until the end of April to submit ideas and qualify for the BPEX Innovation Fund.

A pot of £200,000 has been set aside to help producers and processors develop new ideas, which can be tested and developed. The idea is the whole industry would benefit from successful projects.

And it's easy, says BPEX - All you have to do is contact your regional Knowledge Transfer (KT) Manager about the idea and then send it in.

According to producer Steve Hart, who received one of the first round of grants, the whole process is very easy.

"I would recommend anybody who has a good idea but not enough money to develop it to get stuck in. The BPEX KT staff are very helpful and can guide you through the process."
