Conference to address impact of free trade on the pig sector

One of the main sessions at the AHDB Outlook Conference will look at the changing trading environment, not only in Europe but further afield.

Free trade agreements can obviously have an important impact, particularly for pig producers, with the liberalisation of trade with countries such as Canada where the cost of production is lower.

After the keynote speeches, the conference will have a series of break-out sessions, one of which will include the latest forecasts for the pig industry.

AHDB senior analyst Stephen Howarth said the conference is of great importance to all those in the pig industry.

“The information they can gain will help them make informed business decisions for the rest of the year. It is also a good opportunity for networking with the red meat industry,” he said

The conference is on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at One Great George Street, London.
