TODAY'S IMPACTFUL neWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Most consumers don't want to pay more for animal welfare
Thursday July 30, 2015
Consumers still put price above animal welfare, with over 70 percent saying they expect food products to meet adequate ethical standards without having to pay more for them. But half of the 1,500 participants in a study by Mintel said they would stop buying products from a company found to be acting unethically.

Hog-roast Salmonella scare in the States
Thursday July 30, 2015
Health officials in the States are investigating several clusters of Salmonella infection that appear to be linked to eating pork. The investigation in Washington State concerns over 50 cases in eight counties and includes farm-to-table food served at a variety of events. There is a risk of Salmonella-poisoning when some foods, including pork, are under-cooked.

Eradication of African swine fever in European
Union is currently 'impossible'

Thursday July 30, 2015
There have been more outbreaks of African swine fever in eastern Lithuania in recent days, involving two wild boar, both found died from the disease. Poland, meanwhile, says it is managing to contain African swine fever in its control zone near the border with Belarus. New cases are appearing, but they are near areas where the disease had already been detected earlier.

Government and pig industry to launch a
new way to beat emerging disease

Tuesday July 28, 2015
A new way of Government and the pig industry working together to beat animal disease will be rolled out on Monday, August 3. If the new model is successful it could be extended to other farming sectors in the fight against emerging disease threats. Defra will be launching a month-long "dialogue" with pig-keepers and other stakeholders, to determine whether PEDv — a disease that has created havoc in several countries including the United States — should be made notifiable in England.

Why it makes excellent business sense
for supply companies to support NPA

Tuesday July 28, 2015
Do you supply pig farmers? Are you a member of the National Pig Association's Allied Industry Group? If not, why not? It's at least as sensible as placing adverts in specialist journals, attending exhibitions, going to conferences and other meeting places of producers ... printing product leaflets or engaging a PR professional. And as sensible as employing a sales person.

The National Pig Association is the representative trade association for British commercial pig producers
and is allied to the NFU and represents the pig interests of NFU members.
National Pig Association, Agriculture House, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire CV8 2TZ. Registered in England No. 3859242.
