Pig World has invited several industry leaders to share their business and personal highs and lows from 2014, while also expressing a pig sector wish for 2015. Their contributions will appear here from tomorrow, Monday December 22.
Working to a Q&A format, our festive contributors were asked the following:
- What was your pig sector highlight/lowpoint of 2014?
- What do you most hope will be achieved by UK pig producers in 2015?
- What one pig industry experience did you enjoy most in 2014?
- Free pig sector comment – something you feel strongly about.
Responses to this list where duly provided by Richard Longthorp, Zoe Davies, Patrick Stephen, Mick Sloyan, Sam Walton and Pat O’Flaherty.
We have also taken the decision to use our standard presentation format, which normally features a business logo or photograph alongside the headline, to display a tasty Christmas pork dish, linked to the supermarkets that support British pork, as monitored by BPEX’s Porkwatch service.
Today’s tasty photo is from M&S whose current Porkwatch rating shows the supermarket stocking 100% British pork, bacon and sausages and 98% British ham.
