What does the future of sustainable pig farming look like – webinar watch again

The question “What does the future of sustainable pig farming look like?“, is huge and one which we could only scratch the surface of, at our recent three-hour webinar.

At the start of the event David Houghton, our Technical Director introducing the event suggested that it’s important to find answers and solutions to some of the difficult questions and how we can move towards a more sustainable future.

In helping us to consider sustainable pig farming we gathered together specialists from industry, academia and an NGO, who gave us some excellent presentations  – which you can watch again below

We ran a panel discussion (1:16;30) , headed up by our excellent host Lyndsay Chapman (CEO of CIELivestock), which answered some of the questions that came in during the event, plus others which were put to the speakers. During our panel discussion we were also joined by Simon Davis, Agrifood Leader at sustainability consultancy Anthesis Group.

To view the panel discussion, head to 1:16:30 where it begins.

Individual presentations are below, as is a copy of our delegate pack for our sustainable pig farming webinar.

In true British style #nationalpicniweek hasn't quite delivered on the weather ☔ . But ANY kind of picnic counts so even an indoor carpet picnic works for us.

Happy picnic-ing (and come on please sun) 😎 ...

If you're in this weekend (and let's face it - most of us are) then why take a foodie trip with @marksandspencer's Italian night family dine in. Call us biased but we love the 'Nduja Meatballs with Pappardelle which is a dish in the deal. *whispers* It might be something to do with the fact that the 'nduja is one of our favourite products. And that we supply it through our foodservice team. But, despite our bias it really is a star in our range of Italian continental products and that's what we're about - delivering fresh and flavourful products. ...
