BPEX: EU pork safety insight

Pig producers, stockmen and vets must endeavour to attend their regional meeting on ‘How pork safety is about to impact the security of your business’, says BPEX.

The four meetings, beginning on Monday 9 December, feature new information from the AHVLA on how the EU pork safety landscape is changing; it's an emerging risk to English pig businesses which all producers need to know about.

Pig vet David Chennells will discuss what pig producers can do to safeguard their biosecurity and their business and there will be a revealing insight into what the pork buyers think about pork safety, from BPEX foodservice trade sector manager, Tony Goodger.

The AHVLA's Rob Davies will also lead a frank discussion about salmonella control and practical ways to manage it on farm.
The meetings dates are:

  • Monday 9 December: Sandburn Hall, York
  • Tuesday 10 December: Southgreen Park, Dereham
  • Wednesday 11 December: Sparsholt College, Winchester
  • Thursday 12 December: Gipsy Hill Hotel, Exeter.
