Still time to book for Young NPA conference and dinner

18th Nov 2016 / By Alistair Driver

Today (November 18) is the deadline to book for this year's Young NPA conference and dinner, in London, in December. 

There are still a few places left but the event is becoming increasingly popular so we recommend getting your booking in now. Here are the key details: 

When: Thursday, December 8.

Where: St Matthew's Conference Centre, 20 Great Peter Street, London, SW1P 2BU 

Time: Lunch from 12:30, meeting proper to start at 13:00

Dinner:  Scoff & Banter, Leicester Square

This year we have a packed conference agenda which will be exploring the ever-changing expectations of consumers, with an exciting line-up of speakers.  

The pig industry is facing falling consumer demand for pork and at the same time we are seeing a rise in the popularity of healthy eating trends and people caring more about how their meat is produced.

How might the pig sector need to adapt to meet this shifting consumer landscape?  

To discuss this, speakers include NPA's Georgina Crayford, Sainsbury's Gavin Hodgson, Devenish Nutrition's Jean Kennedy, JSR's Caroline Kealey and Dingley Dell Pork's Mark Hayward. 

After the presentations there will be a panel discussion... and still plenty of time to prepare for the evening dinner in Leicester Square.

Please let us know if you would like to come attend the conference, the dinner or both - or if you need more information - by emailing  by the end of today, November 18.
