NPA Elections 24: Another producer nomination comes in
15th Nov 2023 / By Alistair Driver
A second producer nomination has been submitted ahead of the New Year NPA Pig Industry Group (PIG) elections.
"Confidence in the pig sector has taken a huge knock, but I believe there is a healthy and prosperous future for all of us, and an industry that we are all proud to be a part of," he said in his manifesto, which you can view HERE.
Joe becomes the third candidate to put their name forward, after Pilgrim's Helen Webb and A-One's Peter Bryant.
The deadline for nominations is January 8, 2024.
The NPA is seeking candidates for eight producer and four allied member seats on a streamlined PIG.
Producers will be elected on the basis of the most votes received, rather than on a regional basis. Efforts will be made to ensure a balance between indoor and outdoor production and independent and corporate producers.
Allied members will be elected via most votes in four categories – buildings/equipment, health, marketing/processing and nutrition.
Producers will only vote for producers, and allied industry for allied industry, with one vote per membership.
“The PIG is a brilliant mix of producers and the allied industry, and to make sure we move the industry forward, we need the best people to put their heads above the parapet for election,"
NPA chair Rob Mutimer said.
“Elections for the PIG are just round the corner. If you want to be in the thick of policy making for the industry - now's your chance. We need the best to keep the NPA the best!” NPA vice-chair Hugh Crabtree added.
