Nominations have opened for this year’s David Black Award which is given to somebody who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help the pig industry.
“More than 50 years ago, East Anglian pig producer David Black created the award that bears his name and it is as relevant now as it was then,” said AHDB Pork strategy director and chairman of the judging panel, Mick Sloyan.
“We still look for somebody who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help the industry and there are many people who fit that description. We now want the industry’s help to find them.”
Anybody can make a nomination through the AHDB Pork website, with the eventual winner being be chosen by a panel of independent judges. Previous winners have come from academia, journalism, processing, the allied industry and production.
The award will be presented at an industry breakfast held on the terrace of the House of Lords in November, attended by parliamentarians, Lords, senior civil servants and members of the industry.
Nominations close on August 26.
