The National Pig Association used a roundtable event hosted by Defra secretary Michael Gove to set out its vision for a ‘world class’ UK pig industry.
NPA chief executive Zoe Davies highlighted the need for industry investment in the marketplace and to enhance the UK’s high health and welfare standards.
Mr Gove said he believed the UK pig sector could compete in the global market on the grounds of quality.
He also sought provide assurance to all that the UK Government is not going to compromise welfare or environmental standards in new post-Brexit arrangements.
