2010 Pork Industry Awards announced
Manitoba Pork Council (MPC) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2010 Pork Industry Awards.
These awards recognise excellence in Manitoba's pork industry and are presented annually to individuals, groups and organizations that have made significant contributions to the industry. This year's recipients are linked by a remarkable spirit of compassion and charity.
The following two awards were presented as part of MPC's annual general meeting in Winnipeg yesterday: (A backgrounder with more detailed information is attached.)
· Friend of the Industry Award – Gerry Friesen, Signature Mediation, received this award in recognition of outstanding contributions to the pork industry in providing emotional support and expertise to help farmers cope with financial and emotional stress during their darkest days.
· Community Builder Award – Earl Funk, owner of Earl's Meat Market in Steinbach, received this award in recognition of outstanding contributions to the pork industry in going above and beyond to help pork producers feed southeastern Manitoba's hungry families.
“What strikes me about these two recipients is their generosity,” says Karl Kynoch, MPC chairman. “They have given so much personal time and effort to help pork producers and so many other Manitobans.”
MPC represents the province's 750 pork producers.
